Household Waste Recycling Centre Permit Scheme

Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) are provided for householders to deposit and recycle household rubbish. Trade waste is not accepted at these centres. To ensure the exclusion of trade waste, certain vehicles are only permitted to use these sites subject to a permit scheme.

If you drive: 

  • a van
  • a pickup
  • a flatbed or tow a twin axle trailer (up to 3 metres long) 
  • or you are a pedestrian accessing the sites 

you will need to get a free permit before you visit the recycling centre.

Telephone 0300 003 1118 (the HWRC permit helpline will be closed on bank holidays and weekends)
