The council operates a collect and return service for members of the public who require assistance with their bin or recycling box because of disability or infirmity.
Please contact Customer Services on 01259 450000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit to the property to see if you qualify for the assisted list.
The nearest Recycling site is at Forthbank, Alloa. Visit the Forthbank Recycling Centre page for further details of opening times and location together with details of the wastes accepted.
The Council will collect bulky items of household waste (furniture) from your property including fridges and freezers. There may be a charge for the uplift of bulky household waste.
In the first instance, contact Customer Services on 01259 450000 or email email@example.com. If you are still unhappy with the service then the council has an official complaints procedure.
If your bin or caddy is out for collection and it must be emptied because it is full, please leave the box or bin at the kerbside and it will be emptied as soon as weather conditions permit.
If your caddy or bin isn't completely full and it can last out until the next collection then please take it off the kerbside and wait until the next collection day.
Be a good neighbour. During the difficult weather conditions, offer to share your spare box or wheelie bin space with your neighbour if they are short of space.
