Commercial Vehicle Trailer (CVT) Permits are required for certain vehicles visiting any Household Recycling Centres in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Vehicles that need to apply for a CVT permit include commercial type vehicles (including hire vans) and trailers over 1.3m internal length (excluding draw/tow bar and hitch). Drivers of vehicles that are subject to the CVT scheme who do not present a valid permit when visiting the Household Recycling Centres will be refused entry/tipping. Vehicles which have been rented will need to present a hire agreement for the vehicle. Holding a valid CVT permit does not allow you to dispose of business waste, only waste from your own household can be disposed of at a Household Recycling Centre.
For more information on CVT permits including a full list of the types of vehicles that require one and how to apply please visit the Councils’ web sites here: Worcestershire County Council – Herefordshire Council
