From 5 September, Wiltshire residents wishing to take their waste to any of our household recycling centres (HRCs) in a van or large trailer will have to show a permit – available for free from the council.
The scheme means anyone using the sites to dispose of their household waste in a van, large trailer (between 1.8-3 metres long), pick-up truck or similar will need a permit. The permits will allow a maximum of 12 visits per year, and Wiltshire residents can apply for one online at any time.
Anyone using the sites in a car or with a small trailer under 1.8 meters will not need a permit.
Toby Sturgis, cabinet member for waste and recycling, said: “We know our HRCs continue to be very popular and these permits will help reduce the traffic queueing, while ensuring anyone using commercial vehicles to dispose of their own household waste at our HRCs, can continue to use the sites.”
To register for the permit and for more information people should visit www.wiltshire.gov.uk/household-recycling-centres.
