Rayleigh Recycling Centre

Recycling and Waste

Last Updated on

Complaints are often made on social media about Rayleigh Recycling Centre in Castle Road which is operated by Essex County Council. We’d urge residents to contact your Essex County Councillors (June Lumley – Rayleigh South / Malcolm Maddocks – Rayleigh North) to stress your concerns about the sites location. Clearly it’s outgrown its space so alternatives really need to be looked at.
Here’s an example of the chaos faced by one of our onlineFOCUS readers

  • Make it a one way system from the Recyling centre to Daws Heath Road in the very short term then move the centre, it should of happened years ago. It is also dangrous for people crossing the road, Ive seen some close encounters with kids.

    • Hi Peter – a worthy proposal of further investigation. We will contact the ECC Councillors to see if they can look at this further – thanks for your suggestions, we will post any updates we receive back from them
