Dalgety Bay Recycling Centre is set to reopen next week (June 15) as part of measures by Fife Council to restart more facilities across the Kingdom.

The Dalgety Bay centre is one of three additional facilities that will reopen and booking to access the site will be available from Thursday (June 11).

Households can now also start taking larger landfill items as long as you can do this unaided.

The only other facility open in West Fife at the moment is Dunfermline Recycling Centre which opened on June 1.

Fifers must book a slot to access any open household waste recycling centre and there are strict guidelines on how they are run.

Fife Council said the new booking system has been "success" and that is why more facilities could open.

Robin Baird. Chief Operating Officer, Fife Resource Solutions (FRS), which runs recycling services on behalf of Fife Council, said: “I'd like to thank Fifers for their patience as our recycling centres safely re-open.

"We are really grateful to local communities for the way things are working so far. The booking system is working well and people are getting through our sites quickly, whilst social distancing and safely disposing of waste.

"I urge Fifers to keep going in this way and, hopefully, we can continue to avoid long queues and any issues as our centres reopen safely for everyone."

The re-opened sites are those that can operate safely and within Covid-19 restrictions.

More staff are being redeployed to Fife's recycling centres and volunteers from the council's workforce are helping us to safely re-open more centres whilst they are unable to do their normal work.

Locals are urged to only book one visit per week for each household, as duplicates will be cancelled.

Councillor Ross Vettraino, Convenor of Fife Council’s Environment and Protective Services Committee, said: “The initial focus is making sure waste that can’t be stored safely at home can be disposed of.

"The council is accepting materials that typically go into your kerbside bins (except food waste) - landfill, green garden waste, paper and cardboard and cans and plastics.

"The council is pleased to say that larger landfill items are now being accepted, as long as you can dispose of these unaided.

“Thank you for your patience and for continuing to recycle using your kerbside bins. The council is picking up all household bins, and community recycling points continue to be serviced.”
