Using hire vans or trailers at the Household Waste Recycling Centre (tip)

You don’t need a permit for a hired van or trailer if the hire agreement is for three days or less

If the hire is longer than three days you can’t use it for visiting the tip. Find out more at business waste and recycling.

Hire van and trailer access operates over a shorter week of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday only, during normal opening hours.

You’ll need to bring:

  • your vehicle hire agreement
  • a council tax or utility bill from the last three months
  • your photo card driving licence

If you arrive in a Car Club or Zipvan vehicle you will only be asked for proof of address (preferably council tax bill or driving licence) to be able to use the site. Vans are allowed on site Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

A height restriction of 2.4m applies at both Household Waste Recycling Centres.
