Changes to Medway’s Household Waste and Recycling Centres

From Monday, 3 June, anyone visiting Medway’s three Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRCs) will need to bring ID with them.

Following further discussions with Kent County Council (KCC), it has been agreed that KCC residents will continue to have access to Medway’s three HWRCs from Monday, 3 June, for the next 18 months.

Earlier this month it was announced that, following KCC’s decision to charge Kent residents to dispose of certain materials at their HWRCs, Medway Council would be making changes to the centres in Capstone, Cuxton and Gillingham.

Medway Council has always been committed to ensuring that Medway residents do not have to pay at any of Medway’s three HWRCs.

All residents will need to bring one form of ID with them if they wish to use the centres and their full postcodes will be recorded to enable us to identify and monitor usage by KCC residents.

This ID could be a:

  • Council Tax bill from the current Council Tax financial year
  • driving licence (a photocard or paper licence will be accepted)
  • utility bill (gas, electric or water)*
  • TV licence*
  • bank or building society statement*
  • benefits award statement*
  • letter from HMRC or the home office*

*less than a year old

Please note – photocopies, photo’s or mobile phone ebill’s will not be accepted as proof of Medway residency.

Did you know: More and more Medway residents are recycling. around 70% of materials disposed of at each of Medway’s three Household Waste and Recycling Centres are recycled. Medway’s three sites at Capstone, Cuxton and Hoath Way (Gillingham) also mean a short driving distance to any site for Medway residents.

Before you head to a Medway Recycling Centre, remember to bring your ID from Monday, 3 June
