ANPR systems are increasingly being used by businesses to identify vehicles accessing their premises.

A permit scheme is being introduced for Bath area recycling centres, which will require residents to register for a free permit to use the centres.

The new permit scheme will help ensure that the council tax collected from BANES residents is used to dispose of their household rubbish and recycling and not that of residents living in other authorities.

The council will use Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras to validate the registration numbers of vehicles instead of using a physical permit. The system has been designed to make it as hassle free for residents as possible. Once registered, proof of residency is not required for every visit to a Recycling Centre. The system ensures congestion and queuing at the site is kept to a minimum.

Once the scheme is fully established, the electronic permit system will be used to help staff keep track on residents that they have previously advised about the permit scheme, but who are still not registered may be turned away. The council estimates the scheme will save them £60,000 a year.

A spokesperson for AlertSystems:

“ANPR systems are increasingly being used by businesses to identify vehicles accessing their premises. In terms of recycling facilities, the permit database linked to the ANPR software provides an efficient and secure means of ensuring the centres are only being used by residents with valid permits.
