There are over 90 recycling points available across the Falkirk Council area to help you recycle your waste.

Recycling points offer convenient facilities for householders to recycle glass, cans and textiles.


What you can recycle at the recycling points

Cans

  • Drinks cans
  • Food tins
  • Clean foil
  • Empty aerosols

Textiles

  • Old clothes
  • Shoes (must be tied together in pairs)

Glass (bottles and jars)

  • Green glass

The containers at the recycling points collect colour separated glass bottles and jars for recycling. It is important to keep the colours separate as they are melted down and made into new bottles and jars.
