Locations of our recycling centres

care registration number plates odds and evens

Coronavirus COVID-19

To control the number of vehicles accessing the sites at any one time, a traffic control system will operate based on odd and even number plates.

Car plates with odd numbers can use the sites on odd dates and even numbers on even dates.

Please consider using the Foots Cray site which has shorter queue times. 

More information and schedule

Bexley operates two reuse and recycling centres which can be used by residents free of charge.

Please bring proof of address in the form of a valid driving licence or council tax bill. Existing permits will continue to be valid but are being phased out so please be prepared to show proof of address if asked.
