Bins & Recycling

Bins & Recycling

How are we doing?

In 2018 Fife recycled 51% and diverted 58% of its household waste from landfill. However, 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.

New Access Policy for Recycling Centres

From 1st January 2018 we are operating a new Household Waste Recycling Centre Access Policy.  We have also started to implement measures to control commercial waste disposal at recycling centres.

For more information view our Access Policy or our leaflet on the changes.
