Household waste recycling centres

Household waste van / trailer booking

Due to limits on the number of vans/trailer allowed on site each day, you may not be able to visit on your preferred date.

To make a booking you must:

  • Live in Midlothian
  • Tell us the vehicle registration of the vehicle you will be using to bring in your waste

By filling this form you consent to our terms and conditions (opens in a new window)

Book van / trailer visit

Once you’ve made an appointment we’ll send you a confirmation email with your booking reference number. It may take a while for your email to arrive and in some cases it may go to your junk/spam email.

When you arrive

  • Your vehicle registration number will be checked and only booked vehicles will be allowed entry.
  • Like all users of the centre, you may also be asked for proof of identity or residency, such as a driving licence, council tax or utility bill.


If you no longer need your appointment, or cannot attend, you must cancel your booking by 4pm on the day of your visit otherwise it will count against your total number of visits.

If we need to cancel your appointment at short notice due to the Recycling Centre being closed for any reason we will email you to let you know.

You will need your booking reference and registration number.
