Changes to Waste Collection and Recycling Services
- From 21 February 2022 we are collecting more plastics in the green bin. You can now, put plastic film, bags and packets, plus bubble wrap and plastic plant pots, into your green bin!
- St Andrews Town Centre Changes to the Domestic Waste Collection Service
Waste collection and recycling services are provided by a four bin system:
- Grey bin - paper and cardboard
- Green bin - plastic and cans
- Brown bin - food & garden waste
- Blue bin - landfill waste
You can check your bin collection dates online
In the drop-down boxes below you can see the details of the materials collected for each bin and any changes to the materials you can put in each bin.
Other information to note:
- Bins should be out by 6am on collection day and left out until 9pm or when emptied
- Bin lids should be closed, or we may not empty the bin
- We will not collect any extra bags, boxes or other waste placed at the side of the bin
Assisted collections (Take-Out and Return)
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 service is also known as "Take-Out and Return."
To request the "Take-Out and Return" service, you must have a medical certificate or letter from your Social Worker, Paid Carer, Housing Officer, or Elected Member stating that you aren't physically able to present the bins kerbside for collection.
Only start the online form once you have this letter.
You can use the form below to order bins for your new build property.
If you have previously reported a damaged bin, or requested a new bin(s) and there hasn’t been a repair/delivery within the given time scales, then please contact Fife Council via:
