Forthbank Household Waste Recycling Centre

Forthbank Household Waste Recycling Centre

Important information about depositing wood and garden waste: For safety reasons users can no longer deposit wood or garden waste on the lower level of the site. Designated skips on the upper level should be used instead, and we recommend that smaller pieces of material are placed in bags or other containers in advance of your visit to make the tipping of the waste easier and safer.

Online booking remains in place for commercial customers and those users wishing to dispose of large amounts i.e. more than 7 containers or bags of soil, stone and rubble. Please refer to our waste accepted/not accepted web page.
Location

Bowhouse Rd,
Alloa
FK10 1DA

Entry to site

The use of this facility is free of charge to residents, but due to the significant cost to the Council of disposing of the waste it receives, it is essential that the facility is used by local residents only. 

Under an agreement with Fife Council, Kincardine residents may also use the centre to dispose of household waste.

Proof of ID - Clackmannanshire or Kincardine residency

Drivers must produce photo ID plus proof of residency in Clackmannanshire or Kincardine, for example one of the following:

  • current full driver’s licence
  • Disabled person’s parking badge issued by Clackmannanshire Council
  • National Entitlement Card issued by Clackmannanshire Council

Also acceptable:

  • Other photo ID plus a current Council Tax bill or a Recycling Centre Access Card
    • Note that existing Recycling Centre Access cards can be used until further notice as additional proof, but that new or replacement cards are no longer being issued.

ID will be examined by our staff only for the purposes of allowing access only, and will not be copied or recorded in any way.

Where the driver is not a Clackmannanshire resident but are carrying waste of behalf of a passenger in the vehicle, the passenger must produce evidence of residency as listed above.

The Council reserves the right to make further enquiries concerning the ownership of the waste, and may deny access to Forthbank.

Where suitable evidence cannot be produced, entry to Forthbank will be denied. If you are having difficulty in providing appropriate evidence please email wasteservices@clacks.gov.uk or telephone 01259 450000 for further assistance.
