Severe weather conditions - Flooding

Herefordshire is experiencing significant and widespread flooding. Please avoid any unnecessary travel and do not enter flood water.

Flood damage

If you have been affected by the flooding - all Household Recycling Centres in Herefordshire are waiving the need for a permit for a commercial vehicle until Sunday 1 March, for any resident with flood damaged items they need to dispose of. Please check Tenbury Wells household waste and recycling centre for separate flood CVT permit arrangements.

Normal rules prohibiting the use of these facilities by businesses and the deposit of commercial waste still apply.

Commercial vehicle and trailer permits

Household recycling centres may only be used by Herefordshire residents to dispose of their own household waste.

You will need a permit if you wish to use a commercial type vehicle or a trailer larger than 1.3m in length to take your household waste to one of our household recycling centres.
