Waste Collection and Recycling Update 5/5/2020

Information from Stirling Council in response to questions put by Councillor Martin Earl

  1. When is there going to be a Brown Bin collection?  Not everyone has the capacity to store the garden waste being generated and there is also concern at not being able to recycle food waste? We are keeping the situation under review and are currently looking at a range of options, with the aim of returning to a full service as soon as possible. We have committed to providing another update w/c 11 May.
  1. When will there be some opportunity to visit a recycling centre ? Are there plans for a staged re-opening? The current position is that travel to a Household Waste and Recycling Centres is not classed as an essential journey in Scotland. As a result centres remain closed in all Scottish Local Authorities.  Our Household Waste and Recycling Centres remain closed in accordance with Government restrictions. This situation will be kept under review and we will continue to comply with Government legislation and guidance.
  1. When there is movement on the national decision not to allow any construction site work  there will need to be the capacity for commercial waste to be disposed of at official locations rather than risk more fly tipping. Although the weighbridge at Polmaise Depot Waste Transfer Station remains closed to commercial customers until further notice. Commercial customers involved in critical supply chain delivery (as outlined by Government announcements) requiring disposal services during this period, can contact the Council’s Customer Service Centre.
