Permits are for the disposal of your own household waste only. It does not permit the disposal of business waste free of charge (this includes landlords clearing rental properties). For more information on business/trade waste charges, visit the Hampshire County Council website.
One permit allows 12 individual visits to the Portsmouth HWRC within a 12-month period. Once 12 visits have been made, the site staff will retain the permit and householders can reapply for another permit at a cost of £16.
If your permit has expired or all 12 visits have been used (whichever comes first) you will require a new permit.
No more than two permits (enabling 24 visits) may be issued to a household within a 12-month period.
If you own the vehicle to which a permit is assigned, any member of your household or another driver you designate can use the permit to visit the site in that vehicle and dispose of household waste, but this will count as one of the 12 allocated visits on the permit.
If you visit the HWRC more than once in one day, each visit will be counted separately, and your permit marked accordingly.
