Household waste collections
Service Disruption - 11 Sep 2017 at 13:17
Bin deliveries in Central Fife are currently 2 weeks behind. If you are expecting a delivery of a bin then please be aware that this may take longer than normal.
Fife Council apologises for any inconvenience caused.
We operate a Four bin service service for the majority of our residents in Fife.
We collect bulkier items of rubbish, which may not fit in your bin, from the kerbside. Book this service by calling our Recycling Helpline on 03451 55 00 22.
Recycling Points and Centres
We operate a network of facilities in your local area to make recycling even easier for you. Visit our recycling sites page for more information.
Advice for presentation of bins during high winds
Please help us during periods of high winds by only putting your bin out when necessary.
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 is also known as 'take out and return'.
To request a 'take out and return' call the Recycling Helpline on 03451 55 00 22.
Household clinical waste collection
Some clinical waste needs separate disposal in an incinerator. Your GP or NHS practitioner will tell you this.
Contact NHS Fife to clarify if your medical waste needs treatment in this way.
Fife Council will not be delivering bin calendars to all households in Fife. This saves Fife Council money and reduces our environmental impact. To find your bin collection dates you can:
- Enter your postcode in the box below to check your next collection date and the bins being collected. Once you have selected your property, you can download a copy of your calendar, or print it out.
- Sign-up for email alerts by entering your postcode in the box below, selecting your property and entering your email address. Sign up to receive an email before a new bin calendar is available, or if your bin collection day changes.
If you live in a bin trial area (Markinch, Coaltown of Balgonie, Thornton and Stenton, Glenrothes) then you will be delivered a bin calendar in September.
Bin Collection Calendar
Not printing your bin calendar saves Fife Council money and reduces our environmental impact. If you do need a printed bin calendar then you can:
- Print your bin calendar by entering your postcode above
- Print a bin calendar at your local library. Library staff can assist customers to access and print off a copy of your bin calendar at a charge of 25p per side of A4 printed.
