Check if your vehicle needs a permitCheck whether your vehicle requires a permit to access Hampshire's HWRCs.
|Car or 4x4|
Cars and 4x4s do not require a permit to access HWRCs.
|Vehicle with trailer|
A car towing a trailer that is 1.8m long (approx 6ft) or less can access sites without a permit.
If you use a trailer between 1.8m and 3.0m long (approx 6ft and 10ft) you will need to apply for a permit to access HWRCs.
Trailers over 3.0m (approx 10ft) are not permitted access to HWRCs.
The measurements above apply to the actual trailer 'box' area only, and do not include the towbar or any other attachments.
If you only have a commercial-type vehicle (such as a van or pick-up) available to tow your trailer, you can access the site. You are only allowed to have waste in the trailer, not the vehicle. If the trailer is longer than 1.8m you need a permit for it. Households cannot have permits for a commercial-type vehicle and a trailer at the same time.
You don’t need a permit if you have hired a van for 3 days or less, to dispose of your own household waste.
Householders should bring the van hire agreement with them and present it to site staff on arrival.
|Van, pick-up, or light goods vehicle|
If you use a commercial-type vehicle (for example a van or pick-up) to dispose of your household waste you will need to apply for a permit.

Please also note that vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes are not permitted access to HWRCs.
Horseboxes are not permitted access to HWRCs.
|Vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes|
