SERVICE DISRUPTION - Due to an extraordinary number of vehicle breakdowns, some bins are being emptied the day after collection day in some areas. If your bin has not been emptied please leave it out and we will service it as soon as possible. We are sorry for the inconvenience and will have the normal routine restored as quickly as we can.

There are many ways you can recycle household waste. Find out more about:


How are we doing?

In 2016 Fife recycled 55% and diverted 59% of its household waste from landfill. This means that Fife is still one of the best performing councils for recycling in Scotland. 

Yet there is still more to do. Scotland has challenging targets of by 2025 recycling 70% and sending 5% to landfill. Fife Council has its own even more ambitious target to put no waste into landfill sites by 2020, provided it’s financially possible.


What else can I do?
Our recycling A to Z provides advice about what to do with a wide range of different products.
