Recycling Points

Saving...

There are over 300 Recycling Points in Fife to make it easy to recycle small packaging items such as glass bottles, cans and textiles.

Use the map linked above to locate your nearest recycling point.

What is a Recycling Point?

Recycling Points are a collection of large recycling bins. These are often located at supermarkets, car parks and libraries to make it easy to recycle smaller packaging items such as glass bottles, cans and textiles.

Where are they sited?

We have around 300 Recycling Points across Fife. You’ll find them in your local supermarket, library or community centre car parks.

What can I recycle at a Recycling Point?


Recycling Points have coloured recycling containers (called banks) for each material. You can recycle some, if not all the following:

  • Food and drinks cans
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Plastic packaging
  • Textiles including clothes, towels, curtains, sheets, shoes etc.

When are they open?

Most sites are in open car parks and available 24 hours a day, although a small number of sites may not be open overnight.

Plastic & cans and paper & cardboard bins

The orange plastic & can recycling bins and blue paper & cardboard recycling bins at Recycling Points are collected by a different vehicle to your household bins. You may notice that these bins are collected by the same vehicle at Recycling Points. Please continue to separate into plastics & can and paper & cardboard recycling bins as these bins may not always be collected together in the same vehicle.

The material from these bins is bulked and collected by a reprocessor who separate the material into plastic, can, paper and cardboard for recycling.
