Recycling and waste
How are we doing?
In 2015 Fife recycled 52% and diverted 57% of its household waste from landfill. This means that Fife is still one of the best performing councils for recycling in Scotland.
Yet there is still more to do. Scotland has challenging targets of by 2025 recycling 70% and sending 5% to landfill. Fife Council has its own even more ambitious target to put no waste into landfill sites by 2020, provided it’s financially possible.
There are many ways you can recycle household waste. Find out more about:
- household waste collection services

- reporting a bin problem or missed bin via our online form
- how to find your bin collection calendar online

What else can I do?
Our recycling A to Z provides advice about what to do with a wide range of different products.
Fife Council also operates a commercial waste and recycling service.
