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
  • Clear glass
  • Brown 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.

If you have blue glass bottles and jars, please use the container for green glass. Please do not use the glass banks for Pyrex containers or drinking glasses.

    What is a recycling point?

    Recycling points are a collection of large containers. They are usually found in car parks and allow you to recycle more items than we collect at your household.


    How do I find my nearest recycling point?

    Please use the find my nearest search facility to find your nearest recycling point.


    When are they open?

    Most recycling points are in open car parks so they can be accessed 24 hours a day. However, we advise you not to use the recycling points during antisocial hours (9:00pm to 9:00am).


    Who do I contact if there is a problem with my local recycling point?
