Welcome to re3
re3 is the Partnership between Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Borough Councils and FCC Environment set up to increase the amount of waste that is reused, recycled and composted across the three boroughs and to minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill.
The Councils and FCC Environment are working together to provide local residents and business with first-class facilities for recycling and disposing of waste until 2031.
In 2015/16 the re3 partnership managed 196,659 tonnes of contract waste.
During the same period the recovery rate was 78.23%.
To find out more about how the re3 partnership has managed your waste over the last year, please view our Annual Environmental Report.
The recovery rate is a contractual measure of the total amount of waste delivered to recycling, Energy from Waste, beneficial use and composting
Please call 0800 988 3023 to get in touch during normal office hours.
Not sure why some things go in the recycling bin when other items shouldn't?

Our new Mythbusters series aims to clear up some common concerns. Read them here.

Commercial and commercial-type vehicle permits
re3 area residents now need a permit for every visit to a re3 recycling centre in a commercial or commercial-type vehicle. It is free to apply for a permit, and should be done online through a link on your local council website.
More information on the commercial and commercial type vehicle permit scheme is available here
A list of non-household waste charges and commercial and commercial-type vehicle permit guidelines are available in our Waste Acceptance Policy.
