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 meters long) or a pedestrian accessing the sites you will need to obtain a free permit in advance of your visit to any recycling centre.
For further information and to obtain a permit please call 0300 003 1118 or 01228 518129, alternatively you can apply online.
The HWRC permit helpline 0300 003 1118 will be closed on bank holidays and weekends
