Refill Mole Valley

The Mole Valley lies in the heart of Surrey and is dominated by the beautiful countryside of the North Downs and the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Most the district’s population lives in the historic market towns of Dorking and Leatherhead, and the leafy villages of Ashtead, Bookham and Fetcham.

Protecting nature

In an area so blessed with natural beauty, the community has a great awareness of environmental issues and a drive to protect natural assets. The Refill scheme provides an opportunity to make a positive impact by reducing plastic waste at source and will also bring benefit to the many people that need water as they explore the beautiful Mole Valley area 

If you’re looking to start a Refill Scheme, we’ve got a guide to help you get started.

Who is behind the scheme?

Mole Valley District Council are coordinating the scheme, which is backed by a number of groups including Dorking Business Improvement District, Transition Dorking, Surrey Hills Enterprises, Leatherhead & District Countryside Protection Society and SES water.  

We are looking for any volunteers and groups that would like to get involved in spreading the word of Refill and encouraging businesses to sign up to the scheme, or even creating their own local scheme under the Refill Mole Valley umbrella. Those wishing to get involved can contact local champion, Lottie Fandrejewski by email

Getting involved is easy! 

If you’ve got a great idea about getting involved in your local scheme, or you want to set up your own Refill Scheme, we’d love to have you on board.
