Householders wanting to use a commercial vehicle to dump rubbish at Potters Recycling can do so with a permit from September 1.

The free permits are good news for householders who only have a commercial vehicle, but the bad news is they will be limited to only 12 visits a year.

The introduction of the Commercial Vehicle and Trailer (CVT) permits will coincide with the new opening days at the centres from next week.

Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “The free permits will allow residents who have to use commercial vehicles to take household material to our centres while allowing the council to control the illegal disposal of commercial waste which would otherwise be at the expense of the council tax payer.

“Residents can apply for the permits from Friday, 1 September and will need to provide a copy of the vehicle registration document and proof of identification to show that they are Powys residents.

“We know that the original ban on commercial vehicles caused concern because of the inconvenience it caused to some residents. We believe that the new CVT permit system is a measured response that allows genuine access to the household waste and recycling centres while still providing some control over the waste that is being taken to our sites.  

“Residents will be allowed 12 individual permits which will grant 12 visits per commercial vehicle per household in a year. The applications can be made online and will require scanned documents with household and vehicle details.

“Large vehicles will still not be allowed to use the household waste and recycling centres because they are not generally used as a domestic vehicles and ultimately we have to balance access to the HWRCs against the cost to the tax payer,” he added.
