Recycling centres

Most of our recycling centres reopened on Monday, 1st June 2020. Physical distancing and traffic management measures are in place - visits to centres are strictly by booking only. Book a slot at a household recycling centre or find out how to book.

We operate a number of recycling centres where we accept a wide range of items. We also provide many glass and textile recycling points across Aberdeenshire.

We are undertaking some works at recycling centres in November. Some centres will need to be closed for the works, however, this should not be for more than one day at a time. No bookings will be made available for the scheduled works days and pedestrian access will not be available at Fraserburgh and Westhill centres during the works. If we need to cancel your booking at short notice, we will notify you of this by email. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
