Service Disruption - 19 Jan 2018 at 15:50

Due to severe weather we were unable to empty some bins this week.

If we have been unable to empty your bin by Friday evening, please leave your bin out and we will attempt to empty it on Saturday. If your brown bin remains unemptied on Saturday evening (9pm) please remove it from the kerbside and present it on its next scheduled collection date.

We will be unable to revisit rural properties within Fife due to the distances involved. Customers in rural areas are advised to bag any additional landfill waste and place beside the bin and this will be collected on your next scheduled landfill collection day.

We operate a four bin service service for the majority of our residents in Fife.  
 

Special/bulky uplifts

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.

Food waste bags

Find out how to recycle your food waste and how to buy food waste bags from Fife's Leisure Centres. Visit our food waste page.

Assisted collections

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. 

Advice for presentation of bins during high winds

Please help us during periods of high winds by only putting your bin out when necessary.

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.

Bin calendars

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.

Bin Collection Calendar

To find out which day your household waste and recycling bins are collected, please enter your postcode below.

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.
