If you are a Small Trader who is based at a residential property or runs your business from a vehicle, you can use our recycling centres by purchasing a Small Traders Tipping Permit.

There are 2 types of Small Traders Tipping Permit:

The maximum vehicle size permitted at each site is gross 3.5 tonnes.

To use either permit, you need to produce a Waste Carriers License, which can be obtained from the SEPA website, or by calling them direct on 03000 99 66 99.
