Permit Scheme for vans and trailers

Hampshire residents using a van, pick-up or a trailer 1.8m to 3.0m in length to dispose of household waste at Hampshire's HWRCs will need to apply for a permit.

Time extensions to expiry dates for van and trailer permits

Please be patient as printing and postage is taking longer than normal at present.

All permits due to expire after 24 March 2020 will be extended for up to 2 months in light of site closures.

We will ensure that on-site staff will allow for this.

If your permit expired on or before 24 March 2020 you will not receive an extension.

When all 12 visits are used you will require a new permit as normal.

Reopening with social distancing measures

Residents are required to display their van permit clearly in the window of their vehicle. Permits will not be handed over for signing.

Vans should be bringing no more waste than that which would fit in an average saloon car boot. Site staff may decline access to any vehicles carrying large volumes of waste due to current high demand.

Due to restricted space on site trailers will not be permitted.

All residents will be charged a £15 administration fee when applying for a permit for commercial type vehicles. Only one permit per household is permitted and is for household waste only. Please note that permits may take up to 10 working days to be delivered.
