Waste and Recycling Centres (the Dump!)

See right for addresses and web links for both the Sittingbourne and the Sheerness Waste and Recycling Centres showing what you can recycle at each, opening times and where they are located. Sheerness is apparently not much further than Sittingbourne so worth a try if Sittingbourne is busy.

The weblinks on will give you up-to-date information on what you can recycle at each Waste and Recycling Centre. You'd be amazed! So before you throw it out why not see if it can be recycled locally.

Note that Kent County Council currently manage the Waste and Recycling Centres.

Bin Collections

Bins are collected every week. Green bins are collected one week for normal waste then blue and brown bins are collected the next week for recycling and green waste. Note that brown bin collections are a payable service. Telephone Swale if you would like to sign up to a brown bin collection.

Note that bin collections are managed by Swale.

Collection of Bulky Items

Check out the Swale website for current information on their bulky item policy or just give them a call or email them using the contact details on the right. Note there may be a charge.


If you have furniture that you no longer want and wish to recycle why not donate it to the Sittingbourne British Heart Foundation Furniture and Electrical store details right.

Or you can donate it to the Neighbourhood Furniture Store in Tribune Drive Sittingbourne. Give them a call to see if your furniture is suitable (take most furniture but think sofas, beds, wardrobes, chest of drawers) and they will come and collect. No need to even move it as they will collect from inside. Telephone number on the right.
