You are welcome to use the box for your own household needs, but if you want the box removed, please contact the Council.
This change was made following a decision at Council and public engagement, to protect essential services and improve financial sustainability. The collection of these items is not a service that the council has a statutory duty to provide, and there are councils throughout Scotland who do not provide this service.
The cost of running the service will reduce as fewer vehicles and staff will be required to provide the remaining kerbside, food collection service.
Communal bins will be provided and located across the county to allow residents to dispose of their glass at convenient locations.
No, food waste will continue to be collected weekly.
Council tax funds around 19p for every £1 the council spends or invests in local services. The booklet that was sent to all households has information on how funding is spent.
Textiles and electricals can be taken to Forthbank Recycling Centre, and second hand and charity shops may also accept them.
Over the forthcoming weeks, additional communal glass bins will be provided in order that every resident (in urban areas) has a bottle bank within walking distance of their home.
If you are eligible for the assisted collection service, your collection will continue on a 4 weekly basis, and we will contact you directly about this.
No. Your green bin may not be lifted if it contains materials which can be recycled.
Following a decision at council and public engagement, a permit scheme will be introduced for garden waste in 2020. Full details and advance notice will be provided to residents before this change happens.
