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 a Buckinghamshire household recycling centre. 

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.
