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.

Changes at re3 recycling centres from 30th September

Charges for some non-household waste

re3 is introducing charges for the disposal of some non-household waste: soil and rubble, plasterboard, asbestos and gas bottles. We will check your vehicle on arrival at a re3 recycling centre to assess if you have any chargeable waste. Household waste will still be accepted free of charge.  Click here to read more.

Commercial and commercial-type vehicle permits

re3 residents now need a permit for every time they want to bring household waste to a re3 recycling centre in a commercial or commercial-type vehicle.  Please apply via your local council website:

Bracknell Forest

Reading Borough Council

Wokingham Borough Council

More information on the commercial vehicle permit scheme is available here

Commercial and commercial-type vehicle permit guidelines and the list of non-household waste charges are available in our Waste Acceptance Policy.
