Van, pickup and trailer waste permit

Coronavirus: access for vans, pickups and trailers

Residents using a van, pick-up or trailer can use any of the nine designated Community Recycling Centres again, but will still need a valid van permit, as usual. Hire vehicles must have vehicle hire documentation clearly displayed in the windscreen.

All 2020 permits will expire on 31 December 2020. You will be able to renew your existing permit online on or after 1 January 2021.

If you have not renewed and paid for your permit in a new calendar year, you will be refused entry.

Charge for a van, pickup or trailer waste permit

On 3 January 2020, we introduced a non-refundable fee of £8.50 if you want to use a van, pickup or trailer to take household waste to any of the nine designated Community Recycling Centres.

Once an application is made, the fee paid and the permit issued, we need to remind you that all van permits (whenever applied for and issued) will expire at the end of that calendar year.

You will be able to renew your permit and make the appropriate payment on this page on or after 1 January every year.
