Fife Council say that residents can use their brown bins during the changeover to the new two-shift refuse collections.
A new collection service started on Monday which means household bins can be collected anytime between 6am and 9pm.
A council statement said, "If you are waiting longer than two weeks between collections and have run out of space in your landfill bin, you can start using your brown bin for all types of waste.
"This means that you can put landfill and recyclable waste in the brown bin.
"Regrettably, for this collection only, some of the contents of the brown bin may be sent to landfill.
"As soon as your brown bin has been emptied, please use it for food and garden waste only if you have four bins, and garden waste only if you have three bins.
"The recycling of the contents of the brown bin will start again from the 29th October.
"Fife Council would like to thank you for your patience and cooperation during the changes.
