Van permit scheme terms and conditions

The terms and conditions for the van permit scheme are:

  • a household may hold only one permit at a time and the van or pick up must be the only vehicle registered at that address
  • vans/pick ups must be under 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight
  • vans/pick ups will not be allowed to tow trailers of any size onto the household waste and recycling centre (HWRC)
  • permits are not transferable and are associated to specific vehicle registrations
  • abuse of the scheme could result in the permit being revoked, and no further permits being issued to you
  • you can use the permit up to 6 times in any 12 month period
  • staff at the HWRC have the full authority of the council and a responsibility to question suspect loads and refuse access if necessary
  • this authority applies checks regardless of a resident holding a valid permit
  • closed circuit television (CCTV) and Automatic Number Plate Recognition are used to monitor the use of the site
  • we reserve the right to make further enquiries regarding the owner of a vehicle or the premises from which the waste originated if our staff suspect abuse of the scheme. Where this is proven, details will be passed onto the relevant enforcement authorities and may invalidate your permit
