COVID-19 recycling centres reopening information

Temporary restrictions information

Households and traders with trailers or large vehicles can now access recycling centres using our online booking form. Find out more about our booking system.

Restrictions still in place

Some measures remain in place to ensure centres can continue to operate effectively:

  • with sites potentially busier with more waste being deposited, we request that members of the public follow the Scottish Government’s FACTS guidance when using recycling centres, in particular the requirement to socially distance
  • abide by the signs in place at each site and do not queue beyond 'no queuing' signage at the entrances to avoid traffic backing up
  • no assistance can be provided by site staff to offload materials due to social distancing guidance
  • see individual recycling centres for items that are accepted

Further guidance

  • the temporary restrictions are in place to ensure the safety of customers and staff and allow access to as many people as possible
  • waste should be presented in easily managed amounts that can be deposited quickly on arrival at site
  • recycling centres may need to temporarily close at short notice in order for skips to be emptied
  • we thank all residents for their patience and cooperation and would ask anyone using our recycling centres to please treat our staff with respect
  • failure to comply with the temporary restrictions and social distancing guidance will result in recycling centres having to close again
