muddyplugger Posted December 14, 2005 Share Posted December 14, 2005 I recently applied for a permit to 'recycle' some waste (go to the tip, to you and me). I had to apply for a permit as my defender does not have any rear windows. The 'staff' at the tip say my vehicle is classified as a commerical van and I need to apply for a permit. My local Tip/Recyling Waste Management centre is closed for refurbishment so I have to drive 7 miles to another, no problems! Here is the e-mail from the Local Government officer (following completing a detailed two page form about my vehicle and its waste!): Mr Etheridge I assume you are a Darlington resident applying to use one of Durham County Councils sites while the Darlington site is closed. Unfortunately I am not able to issue you with a waste permit. Darlington made arrangments for residents with vehicles other than cars to use their site at Catterick. If you require further information about the site please contact Darlington County Council. Thank you. Susan Holden Waste Management Unit VEHICLES OTHER THAN CARS???? What the heck is a Land Rover??? Needless to say I have replied in my sarcastic manner with a link to LandRovers site so they can have a look at what a LandRover is!!! Is it any wonder that there is so much fly tipping???
