Asbestos and tyres disposal
From 3rd June 2019 we no longer accept asbestos and vehicle tyres for disposal.
There are two licensed commercial facilities in Aberdeenshire, not owned by the council, for asbestos disposal:
- Savoch Quarry, Longside, telephone 01346 531118
- Taylors Industrial, Balmedie, telephone 01358 743911
Residents and traders can also use specialist asbestos contractors operating in the area.
We no longer accept vehicle tyres for disposal because we need more space for recycling at the council’s recycling and waste facilities. We are trying to make space for more recyclable materials instead, so that residents can recycle more.
When you need new tyres on your car, ask the garage where you have them fitted to dispose of your old tyres for you. They will normally do this for a small charge. If you change your vehicle tyres at home, the company you buy your tyres from may be able to dispose of your tyres for a small charge. Always check first.
Bicycle tyres can be put into the non-recyclable waste skip at recycling centres.
