Bring banks - food and drink carton recycling

A bring bank in Elmbridge

You can recycle food and drinks cartons through two ‘bring banks’ in Elmbridge:

  • Mayfield Road, Hersham next to Walton-on-Thames train station
  • Heath South car park, Weybridge

You can use these to recycle items that cannot be placed in your blue recycling bins:

  • Juice and milk cartons
  • Paper cups including coffee cups
  • Other beverage cartons
  • Soup, tomato and other food cartons

Many of these items are commonly known as ‘Tetrapaks’ or ‘Elopaks’.

We ask that you help us in the following ways:

  • Wash, Squash and Cap your cartons to maximise the numbers that can be collected.
  • Do not: put any other waste in the banks, such as paper, glass, or cans.
  • Do not: leave any cartons next to the banks if they are full (this is fly tipping which is an additional cost to the council).You can take them to a Community Recycling Centre (CRC) (see links above).  

Recycling on your doorstep

Most residents now benefit from a weekly kerbside collection of textiles and small electrical items alongside their usual recycling collection.

If you cannot fit your recycling in your blue-lidded recycling bin, you can:

  • Put it in clear bags and leave it out for collection
  • Take it to your nearest community recycling centre (details above)
  • Order a larger or second recycling bin. Go to: New or replacement bins for more information. 
  • You can find out more information on what can and can’t be recycled or download the Recycle for Surrey app
