We operate a 4 bin waste collection and recycling service for the majority of residents in Fife. Below is a brief outline of the services we provide.
You can check your bin collection dates online
Bin material changes
We have changed some of the items to put in your bins, See the changes to your bins below or download our Fife Recycling Guide attached to this page.
Green bin changes
The following items are no longer recycled in the green and should go into the landfill (blue) bin.
- Plastic bags and films
- Plastic wrappers (e.g. biscuit/crisp bags)
Grey bin changes
Drinks and food cartons are now recycled in the green 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:
