Recycling booking

How to make a recycling centre booking

The booking system is open for all residents of Aberdeenshire for household waste only. Booking is required:

Businesses can sign up to a trade waste collection service or use the business waste drop-off service.

You can book up to 7 days in advance. For limited vehicles, bookings are valid for the opening hours of the day booked, and you can visit within 15 minutes of making a booking. You will need a separate booking for each visit. At Inverurie and Westhill all vehicles must arrive for their booked 15-minute slot, entry may be refused to anyone arriving at either of these sites out with the given booking slot.

Do not visit without a booking for those sites that still require it as you won't be allowed entry. Some sites allow pedestrian access without a booking.

How to book

If you make a booking for a hire van please type in ‘HIRE VAN’ instead of the registration number. Please take your hire documentation with you. 

Book a slot

If you can't book online please ask a friend or relative to book for you or call our Wasteline on 03456 081207.
