Taking Rubbish to a Tip - Tip Run Telford

When it comes to doing the tip run Telford, many people ask "what can I take to the tip?"  Here we take a look at what you can and cannot take to the tip, or household recycling centres as they are called these days.

Some of the many questions we often get asked include the following:

Can I take my van to the tip?

Taking rubbish to the tip in a van is possible with a tip e-permit. You can only apply for these online.   An e-permit is only for domestic waste and NOT trade waste. For more information and applications for an e-permit in Telford, click here.  You are only allowed 10 permits a year per household.  If you have used 10 permits but need help with the tip run, get in touch with us today.

Can you take fridges to the tip?

Many people ask can I take a fridge to the tip? Or can you take fridge freezers to the tip? The answer is yes you can.  The tricky part is getting it to the tip as most cars would struggle with bulky items like this.  If you have a van and an E-Permit you could easily take fridges to the tip.
