Trade waste recycling permits aimed at small traders will also increase in price from £150 to £200.
Cllr John Powell, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said: “The centres are designed to take household material for recycling or disposal that is not collected from the kerbside. Unfortunately, the sites have been used either by illegal traders getting rid of their waste and by householders getting rid of large quantities of waste when they should be hiring a skip.
“This is why we need to restrict the certain vehicles including commercial vehicles from accessing the sites.”
