Online forms: Van booking for entry to Recycling Centre

This form has a maximum of 9 pages

The form will time out after 15 minutes. You can complete it without signing in. But if you do sign in, it will save and you can finish it later.

You must book via this form if you bring your waste to a Recycling Centre in:

  • a van of any size, including a hired van
  • a pick-up truck
  • a sign-written vehicle, other than a hire car, taxi or courtesy car
  • a large trailer (of 6ft x 4ft or greater).

All vehicles over 2 tonnes and all trailers cannot use our Penicuik site, and must use our Stobhill site instead.

You can use a van to bring your household waste to the Recycling Centre no more than 12 times each year (January to December).

You will get a booking reference number by email. Please bring this number to the Recycling Centre. If you forget it, please bring proof of name and address (driving licence, council tax or utility bill) and show this to site staff.

Please book as early as possible.
