Residents passes for East Riding household waste recycling sitesMon 5th July 2021
From 1 October 2021, all cars entering an East Riding Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS) will need to display a resident’s pass - proving residence in the East Riding - to gain entry to the site.
Every household in the East Riding will receive their household’s pass in the post by 16 August 2021 advising of changes to waste collection dates. The passes are provided free of charge, and can be used for any of the ten East Riding HWRS.
If a pass is not displayed within a vehicle, a site attendant will query whether you are an East Riding resident and whether you have a pass. As an alternative, a valid driving licence or utility bill will be requested to prove your East Riding address. Non-East Riding residents will be turned away.
The passes are being introduced to ensure that East Riding HWRS are only used by East Riding residents, which should also help reduce queueing at some sites.
Passes will not be replaced through loss or damage. If residents do misplace their pass they can use an up-to-date driving licence or utility bill displaying an East Riding address instead. All passes will be renewed just before the expiry date of December 2022.
The resident’s pass only allows access for residents in a car. If you wish to take a van or trailer over 6ft x 4ft on site, residents will still need to apply for tip permits online at www.eastriding.gov.uk/hwrs-permits
As is currently the case, residents will not be asked to show their new pass or provide evidence of an East Riding address at the Re-use shop at Humberfield.
Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for environment and climate change at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The introduction of these resident’s passes will ensure that East Riding residents are getting full use of the waste and recycling facilities available to them. Residents in the East Riding do a fantastic job with their recycling which is there for everyone to see when the recycling league tables are released each year. I would encourage all residents to keep an eye out for their passes through the post during the months of July and August in preparation for this change at the beginning of October.”
