Register or update your details for using our recycling centres

Covid-19 (Coronavirus): All Nottinghamshire recycling centres will be closed from 1pm on 24 March, following the Prime Minister's statement on 23 March. The sites will remain closed until the lockdown period is lifted. Any waste you would normally take to a recycling centre should not be placed in to your kerbside bin - instead it should be stored safely until the sites re-open.

To make sure only those allowed to use our recycling centres do so you must register your vehicle(s) with us first.

If the registration number of the vehicle you use when visiting a recycling centre has not been registered with us first you may not be allowed to use the recycling centre.

Moving house or changing your vehicle

If you change your vehicle, or have registered one vehicle and wish to add another (you can register up to two), you will need to complete this registration form again to update your vehicle details.

If you change your address, you will need to update your details in your online account first, then complete the registration form again to update your details.

  • live in Nottinghamshire (excluding Nottingham City)
  • have waste from your own home - if you rent out houses or flats you cannot dispose of this at our recycling centres as it is regarded as trade waste, which is not accepted

What will happen next

Before starting the registration form you will be asked to create an online account with us, or to log in if you already have one. Once you have created and logged in to your online account you will need to complete the form to register to use our recycling centres. Once you have registered, you will be able to use any of our recycling centres straight away.

You will not receive a physical permit as handheld devices will be used at the recycling centres to check that the vehicles using them have registered with us.
