Changes to waste centres in Caerphilly County Borough
Residents using vans and trailers to take their waste to civic amenity sites must now get a permit before their trip.
People using vans and trailers under 1.8 metres to deposit household waste must collect a free tipping permit from a council cash or Customer First office beforehand.
Proof of residency will be required, along with the vehicle registration document.
Permits will be single use and must be handed in at the site.
Residents will be entitled to up to six free van permits in a 12-month period. Luton vans, tippers and trailers which are greater than 1.8 metres in length will no longer be able to access the sites.
Meanwhile, charges have been introduced for all vans disposing of construction and demolition waste.
Charges of between £35 and £70 will be in place per visit, depending on the size of the vehicle.
Cllr David Poole, Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Community and Leisure Services, said: “These new charges are designed to help the council cope with the cost of handling large amounts of construction and demolition waste.
“The vast majority of residents will be unaffected by these changes.”
