Service update: Monday 20th September 2021. All recycling collections, including pink sack and glass collections are back on this week starting with Wickford on Monday 20 September.

Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst services have been disrupted. Please remember to put out your sacks on your usual collection day and note that the Barleylands Recycling Centre has returned to its normal opening times.

Report an Untaxed Vehicle

Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) contractors visit the District daily and will remove any untaxed vehicles from the Highway without notice and put them into storage. The Highway includes most lay-bys, verges and garage areas.

To claim a vehicle from storage the owner will need to pay a fee and a surety if it cannot be proven that the vehicle is taxed. DVLA will prosecute the owner for tax evasion.

Report untaxed vehicles on the Highway:

Online: Report an untaxed vehicle direct to DVLA
