The household recycling centres at Kinneil and Roughmute will remain open in line with Scottish Government guidance, which lists access to waste and recycling facilities as an essential journey.

All bin collections and bulky uplift services will also stay operational.

However, arrangements remain in place for social distancing and drivers are asked to consider if their journey is really necessary.

Roughmute amenity tip

Falkirk Council is reminding residents that only a limited number of vehicles are allowed on site at any time, and people should only visit a site if they can't safely store waste at home.

Drivers are reminded that they will need to provide proof of address and should bring a utility bill or something similar and display it on the dashboard of their vehicle.

If you are a van user and require a household waste permit, council staff will take your details and process it at the meet and greet.
