Recycling Centre Permit Scheme

For use at Newtown Road and Padworth Recycling Centres

Please note that there may be a delay in receiving your permit due to Covid-19


All households in West Berkshire will have received a Household Waste Recycling Centre permit. You must display this permit in your car whenever you wish to use our recycling centres at Newtown Road (Newbury) or Padworth.

There's a separate scheme for vans and commercial type vehicles, including temporary permits for hire vehicles.

If you haven't received your permit, lost it, or you've just moved into the area, you can request a permit online. Please do not use this form if your green permit is expiring. All green permits expire at the end of September 2020. More information regarding the permit scheme will be available soon.   

About the Permit

We're making these changes as our recycling centres are used by a large number of people from outside the district. We feel it is unfair to ask West Berkshire Council tax payers to fund a service for residents living in other Local Authority areas.

You can see more information about Household Waste Recycling Centres, including what types of waste each one accepts.

We've also produced a pdf icon user guide [9Mb] and an pdf icon information leaflet [5Mb]  to help residents understand the new scheme.

Hampshire Residents

We made an agreement with Hampshire County Council to allow some of their residents living near the border of West Berkshire to access Newtown Road Recycling Centre, Newbury.  Eligible residents will be sent the permit by Hampshire County Council through the post. 

Hampshire permits are blue and allow residents living within a defined area identified by Hampshire County Council to use the Newtown Road facility. The blue permit is subject to pdf icon terms and conditions specific to Hampshire residents [138kb]. Please contact Hampshire County Council if you have any issues with your blue permit.
