​New waste e-permit scheme for commercial vehicles

Apply for a waste e-permit


Three of our live webcam feeds - Corby, Towcester and Wellingborough - are currently unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We know that queues can sometimes be a problem, due to high demand, especially during the spring and summer months.

To avoid queues and make your journey as quick and easy as possible:

  • Check the live webcam feed from your local HWRC to see how busy the site is before making a trip.
  • Try to visit the site as late as possible – sites are busiest at the weekends between 10am to 2pm.
  • Sites open at 10am. Bottlenecks and traffic can form on the road into the HWRC if arriving before the site opens. Please note, you may be asked to move on if queuing occurs on the highway.
  • Try to avoid school and bank holidays.
  • Pre-sort your waste to save time when you get here.
