Household Waste Recycling Centre Permit Scheme

Household Waste Recycling Centres 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, pickup, flatbed or tow a twin axle trailer (up to 3 metres long) or a pedestrian accessing the sites you will need to obtain a free permit in advance of your visit to any recycling centre.

Call 0300 003 1118 or apply for a waste permit online.

The HWRC permit helpline will be closed on bank holidays and weekends
