Van and trailer permits for council tips
Vehicles over 3.5 tonnes (when laden) are not permitted into the waste and recycling centres. A charge is made for the disposal of commercial waste.
Householders can apply for a permit to use commercial-type vehicles (such as a van or trailer with a load bed of 1.8m to 3m in length) provided they are under 3.5 tonnes and not carrying any commercial waste.
