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:

  • getting rid of asbestos 
  • on foot
  • using any vehicle with a trailer larger than 1.2m x 0.9m
  • using a commercial vehicle
    • 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.

One permit per household.
