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.
