Recycling points

Medway has 45 small, local recycling points where you can recycle items such as glass bottles, paper and cans. They are sometimes called bottle banks or recycling banks. They are available for use by all residents and must not be used for commercial or business waste. Many recycling points are close to homes, so be considerate and do not make noise between 7pm and 7am when using them.

If you have a lot of recycling or large items, then take them to one of the household waste and recycling centres or arrange for a bulky waste collection.

Please note

Medway Council has started to remove all can banks from recycling points. Please recycle your metal food and drink cans in your weekly household collection using your white recycling bag.

Tesco, Gillingham have requested the Council to remove their Recycling Point, which will be removed Mid-June.
