The council advised residents to check its website for further updates and stated any excess garden waste can be taken to its recycling centres located at Roughmute, near Bonnybridge, and Kinneil Kerse, near Bo’ness.

To access the sites you will need to provide proof of address – you could bring a utility bill or something similar with you – to enable viewing through your windscreen and where possible only one person per vehicle should access the site.
