Use this service to apply for a Van or Trailer Permit.
The Vehicle Registration number will be required when completing the form.
The permit scheme is intended to stop the illegal or unfair use of HWRCs for the disposal of waste.
Any resident of Merthyr County Borough can apply.
Van or Trailer Permits must be applied for in advance of disposing waste at the HWRCs.
You can apply for a maximum of 3 Permits per request with a limit of 6 per year.
Permits can be applied for online, 24 hours a day, or in person at the Civic Centre during opening hours.
Waste Services will check your request and approve or decline it.
If approved, the HWRC Site Attendants will be advised.
You must provide Photo ID and Proof of Address which will be checked against the Permit by the HWRC Site Attendants. Please note that a Driving Licence with a photo will act as both ID and Proof of Address.
The HWRC Site Attendants reserve the right to refuse items if they deem them to be unsuitable.
Permits are free.
If you are having work done by a trade person/builder/other private company, you should ensure that a skip is hired to dispose of any waste generated. It is your waste and you are responsible for ensuring the appropriate and legal disposal of it.
Waste from trade premises must not be brought onto the sites. As the sites are not currently licensed to accept trade waste, it is illegal to deposit trade waste at the HWRCs and traders will be refused entry.
If you are a trader in Merthyr Tydfil you must ensure you have a trade waste contract in place to manage your waste in the appropriate manner.
