Recycling Centres Van Regulations
New regulations have come into force to prevent firms dumping commercial material at Dundee household waste recycling centres.
It follows a survey covering the Baldovie and Riverside sites which showed an increase in firms getting rid of rubbish for free to avoid paying trade waste fees.
Now, a resident permit scheme is in operation which means that any local person who uses a non-commercial van will have to register for a free permit before they visit a centre.
Any resident who has hired a van will have to show proof of hire.
Commercial vans should use the Baldovie Transfer Station and pay a commercial waste fee.
