Fife Council has extended recycling services across the region as lockdown restrictions ease.

Centres can now accept certain white goods disposal– and, from next week, you can go more than once.

With immediate effect, members of the public can now take white goods and small electrical appliances–but not including TVs or monitors – to the centres which have been re-opened in Fife.

Visits should still be by one person, and a  two meter distance from other users should still be mantained.

The easing of rules also includes the ability to now visit recycling centres more than once a day.

Bays for all other materials are still in place, and the council advises that members of the public should go to the next available bay once their booking has been checked.

From Monday, August 10, people will be able to book more than one visit – and bookings can be made for up to three times in 7 days.

Recycling centres currently open  are: Dunfermline , Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Lochgelly, St Andrews, Pittenweem, Dalgety Bay, Methil, Ladybank and Cupar.

In a Facebook post, the council thanked members of the public for keeping to lockdown rules:

“Thanks to the public following the restrictions at our recycling centres, we are now able to extend what can be disposed of and how often you can visit.

“We’d like to thank you for continuing to follow the rules that have allowed us to reopened safely.”
