Household Recycling and Refuse Centre

Located off Stafferton Way, Maidenhead SL6 1AY

Opening hours:

8am to 8pm between April and September (inclusive)
8am to 4.30pm between October and March (inclusive)

The site is open seven days a week and only closes on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years' Day.

The Braywick site is for the use of residents of the Royal Borough only. You might be asked for proof that you are a resident which could be a driving licence, advantage card or utility bill.

Royal Borough residents can also use Slough Borough Council and Surrey County Council sites which may be more convenient. These sites are provided by other local authorities and their rules and regulations for disposing of rubbish may be different.

  • White Hart Road in Chalvey, Slough SL1 2SF
  • Swift Lane, Bagshot GU19 5NJ (only available to residents from the Ascot area or with an SL5 postcode)

The site can only be used for disposing of household waste and cannot accept commercial or trade waste. It is illegal to deposit trade waste at the site. Trade vehicles will be refused entry.

There is a height restriction barrier which operates at 2.1m or 6'9''. There are also restrictions on the size of the vehicles that may be permitted to use the site. Vans and larger trailers are unable to manoeuvre safely on site and can block access for other users.

You can also recycle a number of materials:

  • Newspaper and Cardboard
  • Glass
  • Cans and Plastics
  • Textiles and Shoes
  • Garden Green Waste
  • Wood

  • Scrap Metal

Hard Bonded Asbestos

We can dispose of hard bonded asbestos but it must be double wrapped or double bagged and is limited to no more than three sheets (e.g. 2m x 1m) or sacks of cement bonded asbestos.

When handling and disposing of cement bonded asbestos always:

  • Dampen material before handling
  • Wear a face mask
  • Do not break up whole sheets
  • Ensure all material is double wrapped in a suitable polythene (1000 gauge - or triple wrapped in refuse sacks)
  • Ensure sacks and wrappings are sealed using tape (e.g. parcel tape) before transporting or depositing
  • Don't overfill bags and beware of sharp edges that may pierce a plastic wrapping
  • Use tape to pick up smaller pieces and dust

For further advice visit the Health and Safety Executive website www.hse.gov.uk/asbestos/.

  • Demolition and construction waste such as soil and rubble and DIY materials are classified as industrial waste, not household waste, irrespective of their point of origin.
  • If you are carrying out your own home improvements, we can accept a small of amount of waste but only the equivalent of one car boot load (6 sacks) per trip, per month.

Please remember the first route for disposal of rubble and landscaping waste is through a privately hired skip. Alternatively you can take this material to a facility which accepts commercial waste where it can be weighed and charged for accordingly.
