You don't need a permit for household waste if you are driving a private car with up to 7 seats. However, you will need a permit if you are:

  • disposing of asbestos 
  • using a commercial* vehicle
  • on foot
  • using any vehicle with a trailer larger than 1.2m x 0.9m

*A commercial vehicle is defined as a van, pick up, minibus (with 8-11 seats), flat back or similar, which have no more than 4 wheels.

Please see the HRC Access Criteria section for information on banned vehicles.

If you need a permit, you must apply before visiting the Household Recycling Centre, all permits are free to Buckinghamshire (and Tring and Slough) residents. 

If you have waste from a business, please visit the Commercial Waste pages.
