If you’re powering through the January Blues by sorting out clutter, you should be aware that Epsom Community Recycling Centre (AKA the rubbish dump on Blenheim Road) will now close two days a week.

Its new opening hours, as from January 8, are:

Monday - 8am to 4pm
Tuesday and Wednesday - closed
Thursday and Friday - 8am to 4pm
Weekends - 9am to 4pm

The nearest alternate site is Leatherhead Community Recycling Centre, Randalls Road, a 20 minute drive away.

Real Christmas trees are being picked up fortnightly on selected dates with your usual refuse collection, check out Where I live for details of your date.
