Advice for presentation of bins during high winds
Please help us during periods of high winds by only putting your bin out when necessary.
We can help if you are unable to put your bin out for collection and have no-one to help you. You may be able to get an assisted collection service if you are elderly or disabled. This is also known as 'take out and return'.
To request a 'take out and return' call the Recycling Helpline on 03451 55 00 22 or fill in our online form. Someone will then get back to you.
Household clinical waste collection
Some clinical waste needs separate disposal in an incinerator. Your GP or NHS practitioner will tell you this.
Contact NHS Fife to clarify if your medical waste needs treatment in this way.

If you have not received an updated calendar or have misplaced your copy please call our Recycling Helpline on 03451 55 00 22 (Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm) or fill out our on-line form to receive a replacement.
