Household waste recycling centres' provision and usage policy

Policy statement 3: disposal of waste by charities

Under the Controlled Waste Regulations, organisations (including charities) may be eligible to dispose of household-type waste at HWRCs. This may be subject to change in the future.

These organisations are still subject to the HWRC vehicle restrictions as set out in policy statement 2.  The charity will also need to apply for a charity permit before using the HWRC.

Use the online enquiry form to receive details on how to apply for a permit under this scheme.

Charities should also check with the Environment Agency to see if a Waste Carriers Licence is also required.
