Permit system now in place for vans at Exeter’s recycling centres
Published: 4 April 2022
A van permit system has now come into force at Exton Road and Pinbrook Road Household Waste Recycling Centres in Exeter - and applications can now be made online.
The van permit system, run by Devon County Council, will require residents with privately registered panel vans (both small and large van size) or flat-bed vans to apply free of charge for a permit in order to access Exton Road and Pinbrook Road recycling centres.
The van must comply with the vehicle restrictions policy.
Fully-fitted camper vans, van-based people carriers/family type vans (with factory/professionally fitted seats and windows in the rear for carrying passengers) etc do not require a permit.
Permits will only be issued to vans registered to individual residents and not to vehicles registered to companies/businesses.
There will be no charge for the issuing of van permits. A permit provides permission to enter the recycling centre only and is not a permit to deposit waste, which will be subject to DCC’s waste acceptance policies and charges.
If permit applications are successful the applicants will be sent a QR code, which will be scanned by site staff upon each visit to a centre.
This can be printed or presented to site staff on a smart phone. The permit will allow for 12 visits per year to be made.
