Recycling and Waste

Christmas and New Year waste changes 

Bin collections that are scheduled to take place over the festive period are subject to change.  Bins due to be collected on:

  • Thursday 25 December will be emptied on Saturday 27 December
  • Friday 26 December will be emptied on Sunday 28 December
  • Thursday 1 January 2015 will be emptied on Saturday 3 January
  • Friday 2 January 2015 will be emptied on Sunday 4 January

Recycling Centres will be closed on 25 and 26 December 2014 as well as 1 and 2 January 2015.  Recycling Centres are normally very busy on the days they re-open and you may benefit from delaying your visit by a day or two if possible.

Special Uplifts are cancelled between 22 December and 5 January.  Bookings for this service re-commence on 5 January.

Real Christmas trees can be recycled in your brown bin.  Please ensure the lid closes and the waste is not compacted and is able to come out when tipped into the lorry.


How are we doing?
In 2013 Fife recycled over 55% of its household waste. This means that Fife is still one of the best performing councils for recycling in Scotland. 

However there is still more to do. Scotland has a new challenging recycling target of 70% by 2025.
