Seasonal garden waste recycling points

Seasonal garden waste recycling points are to open in Portlethen, Newtonhill, Inverbervie and St Cyrus from this weekend.

Aberdeenshire Council will operate the recycling points on Saturdays only in Portlethen’s ASDA car park from 8am-3pm, Newtonhill’s Bettridge Centre car park from 8-11.40am, Inverbervie’s Beach Front Car Park, off Kirkburn, noon-3pm and St Cyrus’ Ecclesgreig Road Car Park, 8-11am.

In previous years, an additional garden waste collection service has been offered on a Wednesday in Portlethen. Logistical difficulties mean that unfortunately we cannot offer the extra service this year.

Garden waste recycling facilities are also available throughout the year at all of the many Household Waste and Recycling Centres in Aberdeenshire.

The service will run until November 7.

Locations and opening times are available online:
