Household waste collections

Service Disruption - 22 Jul 2016 at 15:50

Due to vehicle breakdowns we are experiencing delays in emptying some bins. Although we have reduced the number of bins that have not been collected we have not yet been able to return to normal service.

If we have missed your scheduled collection on a Friday, we will still try to organise your bin’s collection on the Saturday but this may not always be possible. If we have not emptied it by 5:00pm on the Saturday and you are worried that it might be vandalised, then please bring it back in and put it back out before 6:00am the following Monday.

We apologise for any inconvenience and we'll prioritise those missed bins for collection as early as possible the next day.

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. Book this service 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

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.
