Book to Recycle trial booking system

Booking an appointment

  • Appointments will be available at least 14 days in advance.
  • Same day appointments are not available - they must be booked at least 24 hours before your visit.
  • There are a limited number of appointments per day, booked on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
  • Demand for appointments is likely to be high as the trial begins. Please cancel unrequired appointments to free up space for other visitors.
  • You need to provide the registration number of the vehicle you will be attending the centre in - if you are hiring a vehicle and this is unknown, you will be asked to show the hire paperwork at the centre.
  • You cannot change the registration number, so ensure this is entered correctly - if you need to change this, you will have to cancel and rebook the appointment.
  • You need to provide your email address so we can send you confirmation of your booking.
  • Since 1 June 2021, you may make a total of five trips to RCs in a calendar month. When you use these trips and which centres you visit is up to you.

What to do when you arrive

  • Please be patient if there is a queue.
  • Follow instructions from staff to ensure safe use of the centre.
  • If you do need to make an essential journey to a RC, please limit the number of people in the vehicle as much as possible. In order to maintain appropriate social distancing, only one person will be allowed out of the vehicle unless strictly necessary, and staff will not be able to help move items except in certain circumstances, for example in cases of restricted mobility.
  • Always keep to social distancing measures in line with Government advice.

Entry to RC

You do not need to be at the centre at the exact start time of your appointment - you can arrive at any time within your allotted slot.

Appointments are 15 minutes long for Bognor Regis and Shoreham-By-Sea centres, or 30 minutes at the other trial centres. See your confirmation email for more information.

There may be circumstances where refusal of entry to a centre will occur. Staff will turn you away if you:

  • do not have a booking - staff check your vehicle registration number to verify that you have an appointment
  • do not have proof of address or a required permit or paperwork with you when you attend
  • are too early for your appointment - staff may ask you to re-join the queue or return at your appointment time
  • are late for your appointment.
