Preparing for your visit

Before visiting Bickenhill HWRC please read our site conditions, to confirm that you meet the height and weight restrictions.

We've prepared guidance to help you stay safe when visiting the site.

You should also check what items you can and cannot recycle. Separating your recyclables out beforehand can help save time.


We operate a permit scheme for commercial type vehicles such as vans, pick-ups and vehicles towing large trailers. The waste you wish to dispose of must be from a Solihull address.

View our permits page to check if vehicle you will be using requires a permit to dispose of waste at the site.

We also operate a permit scheme for hazardous household waste.

Commercial waste cannot be taken to Bickenhill Household Waste Recycling Centre.

Commercial waste can be taken to sites at Leamington Spa or Rugby.
