Depending on what type of vehicle you are using when visiting our HRC, you may require a permit, these can be used at either HRC site.
Important information: please check that your vehicle type is able to visit our HRC sites before applying for E-permits, this includes hire vehicles as you may be refused access, see 'Vehicles unable to use the HRC' for more information.
What are E-permits?
On Monday 16 January 2017 we introduced the new E-permits system, so no more bits of paper to find before you head out to the HRC sites, the E-permits are also allocated to the household now, so any resident living at the property can use the E-permits if their vehicle type requires permits and is accepted on site.
The old style paper permits, previously issued to residents of Telford and Wrekin, will still be accepted until 31 March 2018.
How can I get my E-permits?
To apply an E-permit you must first sign-up for a My Telford account and then select the ' Recycling permits' link to register for an E-permit.
Once you have registered for your E-permit you will receive a confirmation email, then all you need to do is drive to either HRC site with your driving licence as proof of address and a site operative will verify your information electronically, which will then deduct the visit from your total of permits allocated to the household.
You will even get a reminder email when you have 1 E-permit left to check when you can apply for more, details of how many E-permits you have are found on your My Telford dashboard.
You will no longer receive paper permits and you can't print E-permits.
Please note only residents of Telford and Wrekin are eligible to apply for E-permits, we allow 10 E-permits per household over a 12 month rolling period.
