Hampshire County Council has announced that it will introduce a resident permit system at its household waste and recycling centres (HWRCs) later this year, which will see those from outside the county charged to use them.
Residents in Hampshire, are now being asked to register their vehicles in order to avoid a £5 per visit charge. The system will be controlled by automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) softaware. Hampshire residents can register up to three vehicles via the council website, which will allow them continued unrestricted access.
Owners of vehicles with unregistered plates will be charged £5 per visit at all of Hampshire’s 24 HWRCs.
Charges for non-household waste, including soil and rubble, plasterboard and asbestos will remain.
