New permit scheme planned for recycling centres in Bath, Keynsham and Old Welton
A new permit scheme is being introduced at the Bath area’s recycling centres.
People living in B&NES will either have to register for a free permit or show their Discovery Card to use the centres at Midland Road in Bath, Keynsham and Old Welton.
From April 2, anyone who cannot prove they live in the district will be turned away in a move aimed at ensuring B&NES Council does not foot the bill for the rubbish of other areas.
A spokesman said: “The council pays 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. “This new permit should make it fairer for all – residents pay council tax to allow them to dispose of household rubbish and recycling they create and not that of residents living in other authority areas.”

The authority says the move should also cut queues.
Registration is free and will ensure residents’ cars are recognised by electronic equipment at the centres.
There will be no physical permit, although people can use an existing electronic van permit or show their Discovery Card.
