58,000 registrations for new waste centre permit
From 11 July, we are launching a new permit scheme for household waste and recycling centres in the district.
Under the new scheme you will need to register your household vehicle to use waste centres, which means the registration plate becomes the permit number.
You can register ahead of the launch using the council’s website and over 58,000 vehicles have been registered so far. Registration takes around five minutes and each household can register up to two vehicles.
People without internet access can register by visiting a customer service centre, or by using a computer in a local library. Friends or relatives can also register on their behalf as long as they have all their details.
Cllr David Sheard, Leader of the Council, said: “We’re introducing a simpler online system where households register their vehicles to use our sites, so people no longer need to remember to bring a printed permit with them. The new scheme also means that only people living in Kirklees use our centres and that sites are not used illegally by companies disposing of trade waste. We’re encouraging as many people as possible to register before 11 July which will save time when people visit our sites.”
How to register for a tip permit
To register you’ll need your name, address, email address and the registration number of the vehicle, plus the make and model.
Cars will get immediate confirmation of registration while large vehicles can take around three days. To register a large vehicle the owner will also need a copy of the V5 vehicle registration document.
From 11 July staff at recycling and waste centres will check vehicle registration numbers on a tablet computer. As long as you’re registered you’ll be able to unload your vehicle as normal.
