PRESS RELEASE

As of 1st February 2020, residents visiting re3 Recycling Centres will be required to present a document that identifies them as residents of the re3 area: Bracknell Forest, Reading or Wokingham Boroughs. Residents are urged to note that the windscreen stickers will no longer be accepted as proof of residency.

The windscreen permits are already being used by fewer visitors and, to save the cost of reprinting and distributing new permits, the councils are asking residents to use commonly held documents to demonstrate they are from the re3 area - Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs.

The re3 windscreen stickers (re3 resident’s permits) were introduced in 2016 to enable Meet and Greet staff to positively identify resident of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs. They were issued to over 180,000 households but any residents who moved to the area at a later stage or lost their permit have been asked to bring an alternative proof of residency instead.

Full list of acceptable forms of ID as of 1st February 2020:


In a Joint Statement

Cllr Mrs Dorothy Hayes MBE, Bracknell Forest Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Chairman of the Joint Waste Disposal Board, Cllr Sophia James, Reading Borough Council’s Lead Councillor for Neighbourhoods & Communities and Cllr Parry Batth, Wokingham Borough Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Leisure, commented:

“The residency checks are crucial to ensure that Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Borough residents are not paying for the disposal of waste from visitors outside the re3 area, via their council tax. We’re thankful to all residents who use our fantastic facilities regularly and we estimate that majority of them are already using commonly held documents to demonstrate their address, rather than windscreen stickers. This type of residency checks proved to be very efficient and is much more cost-effective as there is no need to re-issue stickers on a regular basis. Unfortunately, we’ve also noted cases of fake permits being presented by visitors, which made them less and less reliable.”

Recycling Centres at Longshot Lane, Bracknell and Smallmead, Island Road are being visited by almost 800,000 visitors each year. re3 residents are welcome to use both of the Recycling Centres to recycle and dispose of a wide range of items including garden waste, glass, wood or electricals items. More information what you can dispose of can be found on the site facilities page.
