Commercial Vehicles or Trailers
The Council operates a Commercial Vehicle or Trailer permit scheme at all Household Waste Recycling Centres in the County, this means that some vehicles or trailers require a permit in order to access the sites. Before you visit please make sure that you have read the terms and conditions of the policy to check if your vehicle or trailer requires a permit. Permits are free of charge and can be applied for online.
Please be aware that if you visit a site without the necessary permit you will not be able to deposit your waste.
In order to ensure that we maximise recycling at our Household Waste Recycling Centres the Council operates a 'no mixed waste' policy. This means that residents are required to sort their waste before visiting the sites, removing all recyclable material. Any resident bringing mixed waste to the recycling centres will be asked to sort this on site by site staff.
Proof of residency
Our recycling centres are paid for by Powys residents. You may be asked to provide proof of residency (such as a recent council tax or utility bill, or a valid driving licence) before being allowed to deposit any material.
