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:

New burgundy bin

From 05 April 2021 we will operate a segregated trade waste recycling service. This means that paper and card will now be collected separately from plastics, cans and cartons.

After 02 April 2021 paper and card should no longer be put in your business' blue bin. These materials should instead be put in the new burgundy bin. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
