Vehicle Permit Scheme

Some vehicles require a permit for residents to deposit their own household waste at both Lynnbottom Household waste Recycling Centre and Afton Marsh Recycling Centre. Further details on the Vehicle Permit Scheme can be found by clicking here 


Vehicles with a combined length of 7.7m or less are permitted to use the facility as normal regardless of the length of trailer. Any vehicle and trailer combination over 7.7m are unable to use the site. Vehicle and trailer combinations less than 7.7.m can continue to use Lynnbottom as normal.

Vehicles and trailer combinations under 5m in length can park as normal in one of Lynnbottom’s marked parking bays (unless the user has mobility issues/blue badge in which case they will be directed to the accessible bay). Vehicles and trailer combinations over this length will be required to use the accessible bay.

The rules are part of moves to improve health and safety, reduce waiting times at Lynnbottom and reduce congestion on Briddlesford Road, Newport, during busy times.
