Apply for a van, pickup and trailer waste permit

Apply online for a free permit to use a van, pickup or single-axle trailer to dispose of your household waste.


Please allow yourself enough time to complete this form in one session as there is not an option to save and come back to it later. The form should take no longer than five minutes to complete.

The questions marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory and require an answer. You do not have to answer all of the other questions, but it would help us if you do.

Applications will only be accepted from residents that live in West Sussex.

You only need to apply for one permit if you have a vehicle and trailer. The permit is for the vehicle. If you hire a van or pickup for seven days or less to dispose of your own household waste you do not require a permit.

Before applying for a van, pickup and trailer permit, you are required to read and accept our terms and conditions (opens in a new window).

If you don't have access to a printer, tell us on the form below and we will post your permit to the address you have provided within 10 working days.
