Seasonal garden waste recycling points

The seasonal garden waste recycling points operate on Saturdays, from 6th April to 2nd November, at a number of different locations throughout Aberdeenshire.

Please note no trailers or vans (except car-derived vans) are allowed. All garden waste needs to be bagged, or in containers, to allow it to be quickly decanted into bins.

Please do not leave your garden waste at these locations when the collection service is not there. This is fly-tipping and you may be prosecuted.

Remember you can recycle your garden waste all year round at many of our recycling centresOur garden waste page can provide you with other ideas on how to deal with garden waste.
