Garden waste and recycling (glass, cans and plastic) services: We are working hard to get these services resumed and will announce a resumption date as soon as we can. We apologise for the inconvenience and thank customers for their patience. Domestic waste, paper/card and trade waste collections remain unaffected by the changes. More details here.
Parking charges and ways to pay for parking
Most of our car parks where charges apply are pay and display. Just find a parking space, pay the relevant fee as shown on the machine and display the ticket clearly within your vehicle.
Our multi-storey car park in Workington is pay on exit. You therefore collect a ticket on entry and then pay at the machines in the car park before returning to your vehicle. Keep your ticket on you to exit the car park.
Ways to pay for parking in our car parks
Paying by cash and card
Most of our machines take cash and card payments. The machines in our long-stay car parks are set-up to give you more time if you don't have the correct change and have to put more money into the machine.
If you use our car parks regularly you can buy a parking permit to save you money. We offer a range of permits including for those on a low wage.
You can now pay for parking in our Keswick car parks using the MiPermit app. Follow the instructions on the payment machines for the details or use this link: http://kb.mipermit.com/en/.
You will not be issued with paper tickets for your stay using the MiPermit app. The payment will be automatically updated in our car parking systems and if an enforcement officer does check your vehicle, the system will be updated with your vehicle details and the payment.
You can use the MiPermit app to add more time to your parking at any point.

Can I pay for parking in advance?
