Recycling collection sites and rubbish dumps

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 possible. The Recycling and Waste Services (pdf) (998Kb) leaflet explains our service in more detail. 

Customers Please Note:
