Recycling and Waste


Household waste collections


Find out more about the new bin collection trials starting in September in Markinch, Thornton, Stenton and Coaltown of Balgonie.

We operate a Four bin service service for the majority of our residents in Fife.  

Special/bulky uplifts

We collect bulkier items from the kerbside which may not fit in your bin.  This service can be booked by calling our Recycling Helpline on 03451 55 00 22. 

Recycling Points and Centres

We operate a network of facilities in your local area to make recycling even easier for you.  Visit our recycling sites page for more information.

Advice for presentation of bins during high winds

Please help us during periods of high winds by only putting your bin out when necessary.

Assisted collections

If you are unable to put your bin out to be emptied and have no-one to help you, we can help.  You may be able to get an assisted collection service (also known as 'take out and return') if you are elderly or disabled.

You can request a 'take out and return' by calling the Recycling Helpline on 03451 55 00 22 or you can fill in our online form and someone will get back to you.

Household clinical waste collection

If you have clinical waste that needs to be disposed of separately and treated in an incinerator then you should be advised of this by your GP or NHS practitioner.

If you wish to clarify whether your medical waste needs to be treated in this way then you should contact NHS Fife for clarification.
