Book an appointment to visit your Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC)
Vehicle registration and booking for Hampshire HWRCs
1. Register your car
If you are a Hampshire resident, you must register your car to continue to receive free access to Hampshire HWRCs.
I'm using a van, pick-up or trailer
If you are bringing household waste in a large vehicle, such as a van, pick-up or a trailer, you may need to apply for a permit.
You do not need to register if you have a permit. You must register your car if you use it to tow your trailer.
I'm not a Hampshire resident
Residents of Portsmouth and Southampton can access all Hampshire HWRCs free of charge. You will need to register your car.
Other non-Hampshire residents will be charged £5 per visit to a Hampshire HWRC. For more information and exceptions, see Out of county customers.
I'm not using my own car
Even if the car you are using is not your own, you should register it to your Hampshire address anyway. You can register up to three vehicles at your address.
2. Book a visit
You must book an appointment online to access a Hampshire HWRC. You will need the registration number of your vehicle.
I'm using a hire van
When making your booking, enter 'HIRE VAN' as your vehicle registration.
If you have hired a van for no more than three days, you do not need a permit. You should bring the van hire agreement with you and show it to site staff when you arrive.
I'm a cyclist
Cyclists can book a time slot at Hampshire HWRCs. Enter 'BIKE' as your registration. Find out more about cyclist access.
I'm a pedestrian
Some HWRCs offer pedestrian-only access at specific times. Find out more about pedestrian access.
Pedestrians are not permitted access to Hampshire HWRCs outside of these times.
