Terms and conditions

  • Permits are free of charge and issued per household.
  • Permits are vehicle, person and address specific.
  • You must be the vehicle owner to apply for a permit.
  • If you move home or change your vehicle you will need to apply for a new permit. Existing permit needs to be enclosed with your application.
  • A copy of your Vehicle Registration Document (V5 log book providing all pages of the V5 document), your photo card driving licence and a recent Council Tax or utility bill must be enclosed with your application. We are unable to process your application without this evidence.

  • You may be subject to spot checks to ensure you are a Bristol resident.
  • After the permit expiry date you will need to renew your permit. Any unused visits are not transferable.
  • You can only use the permit to dispose of waste from the address where the permit is registered.
  • The permit cannot be used to dispose of waste from a business. This includes traders carrying out work in your home or a landlord bringing in waste from their rented properties.
  • A limit on certain waste types is in operation at our Household Waste Recycling Centre. This affects all residents including permit holders.
