Black bag waste
Please make sure black bags do not contain material which could be recycled through
the kerbside recycling service or one of the recycling containers at the recycling
centre. Only waste that cannot be recycled can go in the non-recyclable waste container.
Compost is available for free to householders in the Falkirk Council area. You can

PAS 100 quality standard and is suitable for use as a soil improver.
Please bring your own bags and shovels as we cannot provide these.
