The tagging of landfill bins informing residents about their new collection calendar started on January 14. If your bin is tagged your collection days may have changed and you need to go online to access your up-to-date electronic bin calendar.

Residents can find out their household waste and recycling bins days by entering their postcode. Once you have selected your property, you can access a copy of your calendar or print it out.

The following areas will see changes to their collection days: Newport-Upon Tay, Tayport, Newburgh, Leuchars, Guardbridge, St Andrews, Dairsie, Strathkinness, Cupar, Ladybank, Falkland, Auchtermuchty, Upper and Lower Largo, Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans, Elie and Kennoway.

As printed calendars are no longer delivered door-to-door, residents should also sign up for free bin calendar email alerts. When you sign up, you will receive an email before a new bin calendar is available, or if your bin collection day changes.

Visit and sign-up for alerts by entering your postcode and email address.
