Recycling household waste is more environmentally friendly than
sending it for disposal to landfill. Recycling also helps to reduce
the amount of raw materials we use and by recycling more we save
money on the cost of waste disposal and Landfill Tax.
Kerbside recycling arrangements
Some recyclable materials are already collected
from homes in East Dunbartonshire through the kerbside collection
scheme. We would also request that all bottles, jars and cans
to be recycled are rinsed with water you may have already used for
dishes or cleaning, and all cardboard is flat-packed where
Recycling and Waste Services (pdf) (998Kb) leaflet
explains our service in more detail.
