Commercial or commercial-type vehicles
Residents from Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham who visit a re3 recycling centre in a commercial or commercial-type vehicle (this includes vans, pick ups and vehicles with trailers) have to apply for a free permit at least a day ahead of every visit. A full list of the vehicles requiring a permit is available in re3’s Waste Acceptance Policy.
Due to essential website maintenance work, we will be unable to process commercial and commercial-type vehicle permit applications on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September 2017.
If you would like to visit the Bracknell or Reading Recycling Centres in a commercial or commercial-type vehicle during this time, please ensure that you apply for the permit before midnight on Friday 15 September.
Any residents arriving in a commercial or commercial-type vehicle without a permit during this time will be asked to complete a paper form onsite. However, this may add to queuing times, so please apply for your permit in advance if possible. re3 requires that commercial and commercial-type vehicle permits should be applied for at least 24 hours before a visit in any case.
All online applications will be again processed as normal from Monday 18 September.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The issuing of permits for commercial and commercial-type vehicles will help ensure that residents and firms that follow waste disposal regulations do not have to pay for traders that try to dump trade waste for free at re3 recycling centres.
All vehicles will be checked on arrival at the re3 recycling centre and the following non-household waste items will now incur a charge:
Charges have been calculated to cover the cost of disposing of these items and are non-profit making. Payment can be made on site by pre-paid, debit or credit card only. A full list of charges is available in re3’s Waste Acceptance Policy.
Residents can still dispose of all other household waste free of charge at the re3 recycling centres.
