Using a van, pick-up or large trailer

Van BookingHow do I book an appointment if I want to bring a van, pick-up or large trailer (over 6ft x 4ft) to the centre?

You must book your visit in advance and provide information on the type of material you are disposing.


Each Household Recycling Centre has a strict limit to the number of bookings it can accommodate in one day so please book as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment.


From 31st March all sites will change to summer opening hours (9am - 5pm) and will be closed one day a week. Please check which day your site is closed before you book.

Vehicles that fall under the booking in policy

Book a visit for a van, pick up or trailer

In the event that your preferred site is full you may consider changing your visit to a different day or visiting an alternative site.

Please note

  • Proof of residency is required when you visit
  • Residents with small trailers with a load space of up to 6ft x 4ft do not need to book
  • You cannot make an appointment by phoning the county or local councils

Why do I have to make an appointment?

It is illegal for a business to deposit waste at any of our recycling centres, so making bookings helps us minimise commercial waste.  We monitor the bookings and the materials deposited at our centres to make sure that businesses and traders are not using them. 

Residents wishing to dispose of household asbestos will also need to book this in using the van booking system.
