Make a booking

To use the Bourne Household Waste Recycling Centre, you must book a slot. This:

  • reduces queues and waiting times for visitors
  • reduces traffic congestion around each site
  • helps to manage visitor numbers and allow for on-site social distancing

If you do not book or you break the site rules, we will not let you unload your waste.
