Special uplifts

Fife Council offer a service to collect bulky household items that are too big to fit into a wheeled bin, and cannot be transported to one of our recycling centres.

Before recycling an item it is worth seeing if it can be reused first. Our reuse page offers links and more information.

When can I book an uplift?

To arrange a special uplift you must call the Recycling Helpline on 03451 55 00 22. Book between 8.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

Bookings are available up until 2.00pm the day before the uplift is due.

How much does it cost?

The bulky uplift service cost is determined by how many units you use. Each item costs a certain amount of units and you can use up to 36 units per collection.

  • 0 - 18 units = £15
  • 19 - 36 units = £30

Item Example

  • Fridge Freezer = 18 units
  • Television = 6 units

We do not offer refunds. You cannot change your collection once it has been arranged.
