Not everyone needs a permit to use the recycling facility. Cumbrian residents wishing to use a recycling centre in a normal 4-wheel car will not need a permit, even with a trailer (provided it is less 3m and has a single axle). Please note: vehicles with more than four wheels or with tipping mechanisms are not permitted at any of the HWRC sites.

For a full explanation of the recycling scheme please read the Household Waste Recycling Scheme page on this site.

For further information please also refer to the FAQ pages.
