Do I Need A Van Tip Permit

Do you need a permit for the tip when driving a van? Since most local tips and waste management services treat vans as commercial vehicles there will usually be a permit requirement and occasionally associated fees for tradesmen that use the tip frequently. It is also important to note that some tips may refuse commercial vehicles on-site altogether. 

Do you need a permit for the tip when driving a van? Since most local tips and waste management services treat vans as commercial vehicles there will usually be a permit requirement and occasionally associated fees for tradesmen that use the tip frequently. It is also important to note that some tips may refuse commercial vehicles on-site altogether. 

However, this will depend on your local council's rules and regulations. The great news is that most local councils will grant a free permit for local residents, which will allow them to dispose of household waste, but will often require an application for the permit in advance of the visit.

In terms of the waste, there will also be restrictions that will differ depending on your local council that you must be aware of. Generally waste that is considered commercial waste for example will not be allowed under a domestic permit.

How To Apply For Waste Permits

Wondering how to get a tip permit? Don’t worry, applying for a permit is straight-forward, you can submit an application online. For instance, if you require a HWRC (Household Waste Recycling Centre) permit in Doncaster simply visit the Doncaster Council HWRC permits website.

From here you will be able to see all of the vehicles that need a permit to access the recycling centre. 

The Doncaster council tip also has a “one-off tip system”. This will allow you to visit the tip with hire vans (sign-written allowed) as a one-off. If this works best for you and you would like to avoid the need for a permit checkout our self-drive van hire options, you can take luton vans, flatbed pickups and tipper type vehicles without a permit as one-off. you can also contact the DMC directly on 01302 736000.

If you require a permit simply follow the step-by-step process via the Doncaster Council HWRC permit website, you will have the option to register an account, if you do not wish to do this you can also continue without registering. 

If you require a permit at a different location checkout our local council waste permit resources below or run a simple search for tip permits in your area and be sure to use the dedicated government website for that area.

Can I Take A Hire Van To The Tip?

Yes, however the flexibility will very much depend on your local tip’s rules and regulations. Many of the local council tips will still only allow van rentals on-site with the correct permit. Please check out the local council waste permit resources below if you are local to hirefleet and need more information on how your local council operates regarding van tipping permits.

Another consideration for van hire is the fact that many local waste sites will enforce a maximum amount of visits. For instance, many tips will only allow you to make 12 visitations over a 12-month period, this is regardless of your vehicle being a car or van. The key consideration here is that if you have a lot of waste to move, you will be able to dispose of the waste in much less visits, which will prevent you from exceeding your maximum quota for the year. 

Before you select which van you would like to hire, be mindful that there are also special requirements in some instances for rental vehicles. North Lincolnshire Council for instance allow rental vans up to 3,000KW with permits, which would be considered flexible, but other local councils will have maximum weight restrictions that are more restrictive, only allowing for small van hire

There are also some local councils that have specific rules regarding rental vehicles that you will want to be aware of before your visit. An example would be the Leeds Council tip that offers permits that only last 14 days and can only be granted 4 times per year for domestic waste.

How Much Is A Van Permit For The Tip?

In some cases, you will require a commercial permit or van permit for tip access to make use of your local waste management services. For instance, the Leeds Council Waste Permit Scheme states you will need a commercial, large vehicle and trailer permit for the following vehicles

  • SWB (low roof) that exceeds 3 tonnes gross vehicle weight
  • Car with trailer with the max size being 1.2m x 1.8m (4ft x 6ft)
  • Car with business logo or signage
  • 4x4 pickup (including enclosed vehicles)
  • Minibus
  • Camper Van
  • High Occupancy Vehicles (8-16 Seats) 

So, how much does a tip permit cost? The cost associated with your waste will depend on the type of commercial waste that you bring to your local tip and the vehicle load that you bring on-site. You will often need to speak with a member of staff on-site that will provide you with a quote for the total cost of waste disposal.

Here are some examples of chargeable waste. 

  • Rubble, hardcore and soil
  • Plasterboard & Gypsum
  • Ceramics
  • Tyres
  • Asbestos

The exact cost will depend on the load that you bring on-site, for instance the Leeds council tip states that for a trailer load up to 4ft x 6ft you will need to pay £20.80 for rubble, hardcore, soil or ceramics and will require a commercial permit, but will only need to pay £2.60 for a 25 litre box or bag (no permit required). 

Plasterboard and gypsum-related waste is quoted at £4.80 per 25 litre box or bag (no permit required) and £34.40 for a trailer load up to 4ft x 6ft in which a commercial permit is also required.

They also quote single items such as concrete posts, lintels and paving slabs at £2.60 with tyres being priced at £1.50 each and a maximum disposal of four tyres total. 

Please note these are the prices associated with Leeds Council tip to give you a rough idea, you will need to checkout the local council tip permit section bellow for your exact local tip costs or search for your local council tips website if not listed below.
