Permits can be bought at Falkirk Council One Stop Shops and Advice Hubs and anyone using the service will have to produce a waste carrier’s license issued by SEPA.

Councillor Paul Garner, spokesperson for the Environment said: “The reduction in the cost of the recycling permit for small traders will encourage them to use the sites more often and increase the amount of material recycled.”
