Why do you need a permit?

In person:

We pay a significant amount of money each year for non Bath and North East Somerset residents to dispose of their waste for free at our recycling centres. We cannot continue to subsidise this.

Please visit your nearest or most convenient Council Connect One Stop Shop

This new permit should make it fairer for all - your Council Tax pays for you to dispose of household rubbish and recycling created by you, and not that of residents living in other authorities. As well as helping us save costs, this should also reduce queuing times for you at the centres. Our neighbouring authorities have already introduced similar schemes. How to register for your permit Registering is easy and will only take a couple of minutes. We just need to know your name, address and vehicle registration(s) – you do not need your Council Tax account number or any other details. The easiest and most convenient way to register is online at

• Bath One Stop Shop, Manvers Street • The Hollies, Midsomer Norton • Riverside Keynsham At your local library: You can register at your local library by using the ‘Free Access’ facility available on the computers in all libraries.
