Find out how to get a permit to use Bishop’s Stortford Recycling centre
Hertfordshire Council now requires Essex residents to apply for a permit when disposing of home waste.
The permits allow residents to access four of the County Council’s sites:
- Bishops Stortford Recycling Centre
- Hoddesdon Recycling Centre
- Turnford Recycling Centre
- Ware Recycling Centre
Permits are free, valid for 12 months, and can be applied for at Hertfordshire Council’s website
Domestic waste only
Essex residents are ineligible to apply a van permit. Vans owners are excluded from the domestic waste permit scheme, which is aimed at household waste.
Permit holders on arriving at a recycling site will have their permit checked and their waste. Operators will turn away suspected commercial, industrial or excessive waste.
The prohibition also includes rubbish from charities and organisations.
