Recycling centres permit changes
4:20pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in News
CHANGES have been made to permits allowing the disposal of rubbish and recycling at Herefordshire’s household recycling centres.
Herefordshire Council says the idea behind the alteration is to tackle the illegal disposal of trade waste which “ultimately costs the council and taxpayers”.
The new commercial vehicle and trailer (CVT) permits are free of charge and only apply to drivers using a commercial vehicle or trailer.
“The majority of people using our household recycling centres will not be affected by the new permits,” said Councillor Harry Bramer, cabinet member for major contracts with Herefordshire Council.
“The permits are designed to tackle the illegal disposal of trade waste at our recycling centres, which ultimately costs the council and taxpayers.”
The CVT permits are only needed for vans or pickups, crew cab pickups, commercial type vehicles and trailers over 1.3m in length.
To request a CVT application form, visit letswasteless.com or collect a form from your local info centre.
