Household Waste Recycling Centres


***From Monday 2nd August, soil and rubble can be brought by car to all Fife Household Waste Recycling Centres. The existing access policy for vans and trailers still applies.***

Thanks to you and the changes we made to Recycling Centres, there were few issues with traffic management and safety when reopening our sites. There are still, however, strict guidelines to how Recycling Centres are run to keep local people and staff safe. These can be found in the COVID19 access policy and site rules.
