Waste Permit Scheme

3. Charity and not-for-profit organisations

Before applying for an e-permit or going to a Household Recycling Centre, all charities must contact the Environment Agency (EA) to complete a WMC2 .

Charities also include not-for-profit such as Churches, Youth Clubs and Town & Parish Councils.

You can view a guide online  or call 03708 506 506. This will enable the EA to decide whether to issue a certificate. Once these details have been verified, please request a waste permit, using these details.

Permits will only be given to addresses in Buckinghamshire, and they must show their licence or exemption when disposing of waste at BCC HRC. 

All charities have to pay to dispose of non-household waste, visit the Charges for non-household waste page for prices

Charities cannot dispose of any of the following items:

  • asbestos
  • hazardous waste 
  • lead acid (vehicle) batteries
  • chemicals
  • any electrical items e.g. fridges/freezers, TVs & monitors, small appliances
  • light bulbs or fluorescent tube lights
  • gas bottles
  • cooking or engine oil
  • tyres

Charities are permitted to visit our recycling centres Monday to Friday only.
