Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) E-Permit Scheme

Vehicle Details

HWRCs are provided for householders to dispose of their waste from their own home, safely and conveniently for free.

Unfortunately, some traders use the HWRCs to illegally dispose of their commercial waste, leaving the council-tax paying residents of Northamptonshire to foot the bill for tens of thousands of pounds for its disposal. Consequently, like other councils, North Northamptonshire Council, in partnership with West Northamptonshire Council has taken the decision to introduce a simple electronic permit (e-permit) scheme to reduce trade waste abuse.

Commercial type vehicles are more likely to be carrying trade waste than a standard car visiting the sites. Therefore, from 1st October 2018 residents using commercial type vehicles, or a car towing a trailer to take waste to any of the 9 household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in the county will need to apply for a free permit.
