Recycling and Waste
How are we doing?
In 2013 Fife recycled over 56% 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.
There are many ways you can recycle household waste. Find out more about:
- household waste collection services
- Recycling Points and
- Recycling Centres
- reporting a bin problem or missed bin via our online form
- find your bin collection calendar online
- or use our bin disruption app to find out why your bin may not have been emptied.
New four bin service
As part of our drive to improve recycling we are issuing a new 4 bin service to the majority of Fife over the coming years. In August 2014 parts of Kirkcaldy, Kinghorn and the surrounding area will move across to the new 4 bin service. Find out more here.
Rural Recycling Service
A new waste collection service was introduced to rural properties in June 2013. Find out more here.
What else can I do?
Recycling is just one way that you can help the environment and reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill:
- recycle all you can by using our recycling A to Z.
- you can reduce waste and unwanted mail.
- you can prevent waste going to landfill by donating furniture and electrical equipment to charity.
- you can make something useful out of your fruit and vegetable peelings by composting at home.
Fife Council also operates a commercial waste and recycling service. Find out more here.
