House clearance permit

House clearance permit

What is a house clearance permit?

We operate a house clearance permit system for the Household Recycling Centres. This allows residents to assist with family crisis (bereavements) or for urgent need (house moves).

Anyone can apply for a house clearance permit for an address within North Lincolnshire.  

House clearance permit holders will be able to take a hire van onto the Household Recycling Centres. No other sign written vehicles (for example, owned by a private individual) will be allowed to apply for a permit.

The permit is only valid for the Household Recycling Centre site requested on the application form.
