Apply for a recycling centre permit

You no longer have to book a slot at our recycling centres for any vehicle.

However, you must still register for a free permit to bring some vehicles.

Waste types and site maps 

To check the types of waste you can bring, where to unload it when on-site and opening times, view our site information.

We do not allow

  • commercial vehicles or business waste
  • overloaded trailers
  • flat-bed pick-ups
  • any vehicle more than 2 metres (6 feet 6 inches) high, including any roof bars or boxes*

If you have a trailer permit and the towing vehicle is a van, you are only permitted to carry waste in either the van or the trailer, not in both.

*If you use a disability adapted vehicle that is over 2 metres in height please contact us before applying.
