How to book a slot to visit and how to cancel a booking.

From 6 June 2022 you'll need to book to visit the recycling centres. Booking opened on 23 May 2022.

You can book up to two weeks in advance, or one hour before you visit, if slots are available. 

Booking is quick, simple and removes the need to queue on site.

Book a slot

People without access to the internet can call 0117 922 2100 Monday to Friday between 8.30am to 6pm (closed midday to 1.30pm on Wednesday).

If you're visiting the recycling centres on foot (Hartcliffe Way recycling centre only) or by bike, you do not need to book.

The booking system replaces the odd and even number plate system. The odd and even number plate system will remain in place until the end of Sunday 5 June 2022.

Please arrive 5 minutes before your slot starts and separate materials before coming to site.

Hire vehicles

When booking you will need to select ‘I am using a hire vehicle' option. When you arrive on site, you'll be asked to show your hire documentation.

You must arrive in the vehicle you registered when booking.

Reuse shops

You do not need to book if you're only visiting the shop at the Avonmouth centre.

If you're visiting the Days Road shop you'll need to book a slot as the shop is accessed through the Reuse and Recycling Centre.

Donating to the Reuse shops

The donation areas for pre-loved goods are in the Recycling Centres, so if you're planning to donate, you'll need to make a booking.

How to cancel a booking

You'll be able to cancel a booking using the link in your confirmation email. Please try to cancel with as much notice as possible so that the slot can be offered to someone else.
