Council’s bulky item collection service resumes

Fife Council's bulky / special item uplift service can be booked online from today, 1 June 2020. Initially operating on Saturdays only (starting on 6 June), the service will be available so that residents can dispose of unwanted household waste and recycling that has built up over the lockdown period.

The bulky uplift service is restarting, with local people able to book an uplift online from 1 June by visiting www.fife.gov.uk/bulkyuplifts

Collections will be carried out on the Saturday after householder landfill (blue) bins have been collected.

Visit www.fife.gov.uk/bulkyuplifts to book and pay securely online for this service, at a time convenient to you.

Cllr Ross Vettraino, Convener - Environment, Protective Services & Community Safety Committee, said: “We are pleased to confirm the return of our special item collection service.  This waste collection service can now be booked online .

"We anticipate that initial demand for this service will be high,  so please only book a bulky uplift if you have waste that poses a health or fire risk and cannot safely be stored at home.”

This online service is an easy way to arrange the collection of unwanted items and offers an alternative to booking a slot at one of the council's open recycling centres.

The council is also advising local people to see if any item can be reused first, before it is uplifted. Householders can find out more online about how an item can be re-used.
