Dartford permit scheme

To visit the Dartford HWRC you must do one of the following:

  • display a permit (Dartford residents only)
  • show proof of address (Kent residents only)
  • pay £10 for access (non-Kent residents).

The permit allows Dartford residents free access to the site to dispose of domestic waste (some charges may apply).

If you don't have a permit but live in Kent, you can use the Dartford HWRC free of charge but will need to show proof (for example a household bill) that you pay your Council Tax to a Kent borough or district council.

Any non-Kent residents, for example those from neighbouring authority areas such as Bexley and Medway, may use the Dartford HWRC but must pay £10. Tickets can be bought from the machine located at the entrances of any of our household waste recycling centres.

Permit rules

  • One permit per household.
  • Only you can use the permit.
  • You are not allowed to use the permit at other sites.
