Car and van bookings for HRC visits

Only a resident’s own household waste can be accepted at a Household Recycling Centre, the deposit of commercial and/or industrial waste is a criminal offence.

All visits must be booked in advance using the online booking function.

Make a new van booking or amend an existing booking below.

Please be advised, we are updating the van and large trailer booking system so that residents wishing to use a commercial type vehicle or large trailer to bring their household waste will need to select a half hour booking slot, as they would if using a car. This is to prevent such vehicles from arriving at the same time and creating congestion on site.

Amend a van/ large trailer booking

Van bookings must be made for commercial type vehicles which include:

  • Any van
  • Any pick-up
  • Large trailers with a load bed greater than 6ft x 4ft
  • Mini-buses and camper vans where the seats/furniture has been removed to create a load space


    Van, pick-up and large trailer restrictions:

    • Vans, pick-ups and large trailers are restricted to one visit per day
    • The maximum acceptable gross vehicle weight is 3.5 tonnes, no vehicles over this size will be permitted access.
    • If you are bringing a van or pick up pulling a trailer (of whatever size) then the waste must be in the van / pick up or the trailer and not both.
    • If you are using a hire van, please use HIREVAN in the registration field and remember to bring your hire agreement with you.
