You need a permit to bring household waste into recycling sites with certain vehicles. Please read this information then start entering details at bottom of this page (You will need to first enter your post code and select an address to confirm eligibility, then enter your full details, including address, manually to process your application. In both cases please enter your home address). Vans, pick-up, campervans and mini-buses or similar large capacity vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight Trailers single axle up to a three metre floor length towed by cars These vehicles cannot access any recycling site if towing a trailer: vans, pick-ups, campervans or mini-buses. Only one permit for a van (or similar large capacity vehicle) and/or one permit for a trailer (to be towed by car) is allocated per household. If you are unsure if your vehicle requires a permit, or if you wish to use a hire vehicle or trailer (which can only be a vehicle or trailer that would otherwise be permitted), you can find out more in the sections below. All vehicles must be road legal to access any recycling site. Under permit T&Cs, your data may be shared with Local Authority Officers and other governmental organisations legally entitled to request the information we hold. Permit frequently asked questions and answers (opens in a new tab) IMPORTANT UPDATE: If you have an existing permit with an expiry date, the scheme is being rolled on with no changes. All existing and new cards will remain valid unless any key details – such as your address or vehicle – change. Only then do you need to apply for a new free permit and destroy the old card. The only thing changing is that those applying will get a different coloured card with no expiry date.
