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.

 New Access Policy for Recycling Centres

From 1 January 2018 we will be operating a new Household Waste Recycling Centre Access Policy.  We will also start to implement measures to control commercial waste disposal at Recycling Centres.  For more information view our Access Policy or our leaflet on the upcoming changes.

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