Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

If you are an existing Falkirk Council trade waste customer and your business is currently closed due to COVID-19, we are able to stop your bin collection service with immediate effect and adjust your annual 2020-21 invoice accordingly. Please contact our Trade Waste Team for more information:

Under the Waste (Scotland) Regulations 2012, all businesses must have a separate collection for the following:
