Message From Your County Councillor: E-Permit Scheme For Recycling

From October 2019, you will need an e-permit to dispose of household waste at any of the nine CCC Household Recycling Centres using a commercial-type vehicle or any trailer in excess of 1.5m length (excluding the towing mechanism) or 570 litre capacity. E-permits are free of charge and will only be issued to Cambridgeshire residents on a per household basis. The e-permit allows a maximum of 12 visits to a site within a 12 month period. If you use up your allowance, you will have to wait until the 12 month period has passed to renew your e-permit.
A vehicle that requires a permit and is towing a trailer of any accepted size will count as two visits if they both contain waste.

Residents without internet access can obtain a permit by telephoning 0345 045 5207.

To apply for your free e- permit go to https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/waste-and-recycling/household-recycling-centre-e-permit-scheme/
