Recycling centres

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.

Book a visit

Pedestrian access

Pedestrian access without booking is available daily, 12pm to 12.30pm at Alford, Fraserburgh, Huntly, Insch, Laurencekirk, Portsoy, Turriff and Westhill.

Vehicles are banned during those times to allow pedestrians, bicycles, and bikes with trailers safe access.

Please don't park your vehicle outside the centre and walk in as this causes spillages and issues for passing traffic.
