Recycling Centre         

The Recycling Centre in Burham village is provided / operated by: TMBC, KCC, The British Heart Foundation, D.S. Smith and Burham Parish Council. There are various containers for recycling unwanted items which are not collected from your premises, these include containers where you can recycle:

  • Glass: Green, Clear and Brown
  • Cans
  • Plastic: NB items numbered 1, 2, 4 and 5 only
  • Books and CDs
  • Cardboard and Paper: Please ensure cardboard is flattened prior to putting into the container so more can be fitted in, as there is a charge to Burham Parish Council of £25 each time the container is changed. Note also that both cardboard & paper is accepted even where the container says ‘no cardboard’.

The Recycling Containers are sited adjacent to the Village Hall. Please do not leave household rubbish or any other items in this area! Any items left are considered as fly tipping, details will be notified to TMBC who have the authority to issue a £400 fixed penalty notice. One has recently been issued for such an offence in Burham.
