Householders are asked to check the online bin calendar on its website for their next scheduled collection date on a Sunday evening or Monday morning.

Other bin collections are continuing at the moment with brown bins being collected every four weeks.

A full service is taking place for green bins, however some properties in East and West Fife will have theirs collected on a different week to help the council manage its resources.

Not all properties will be affected but people are urged to check the online bin calendars every Sunday to ensure the green bin is out on the right week.

“Please look out for your neighbours and check that they can put their bins out. It may not be possible to come back for missed bins until your next scheduled collection day.

“Thank you for your understanding.”
