Register for continued free access to HWRCs



Over 150,000 Hampshire residents’ vehicles have already been registered online, ahead of the launch of a new permit system on 1 April – giving Hampshire residents continued, automatic free access to Hampshire Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs).

The new resident permit system will be controlled by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and will ensure continued free access for Hampshire residents to any of Hampshire’s 24 HWRCs to dispose of household waste, while access for non-Hampshire residents will be for a fee of £5 per visit. Charges for non-household waste, including soil and rubble, plasterboard and asbestos remain.

Hampshire residents can register up to three vehicles via the Hampshire County Council website. There is plenty of time to register, and once Hampshire residents have done this, they will see no change when they next visit a Hampshire HWRC. Residents who live close to Hampshire’s borders can continue to access the HWRCs, but in a way that is fairer to Hampshire residents who pay for the cost of the service through their council tax.

Hampshire residents, including those who live in Southampton and Portsmouth, can register at: www.hants.gov.uk/vehicle-registration-hwrc
