Changes to Stirling waste recycling centres

Stirling residents will need to book an appointment to visit waste recycling centres.

Stirling Council say the new system will improve efficiency and customer service.

A booking reference number and proof of address will be needed when arriving.

The move was confirmed back in February.

A similar scheme was introduced by Falkirk Council last year - with the council saying the aim is for "safer and quicker" visits.

Councillor Jen Preston said: 

"The new booking system will ensure there are no long queues of traffic at peak times, which can cause frustration. Our site operatives will also be able to provide clearer guidance as demand is better managed when our recycling centres are busiest.

“Appropriate use of the Household Waste Recycling Centres will increase recycling rates and contribute to our net zero ambitions in line with our Climate and Nature Emergency Plan.  It will also lead to a reduction in the cost of disposing of indiscriminate waste from commercial vehicles.

“We thank residents for working with us to implement these important changes to improve how we recycle household waste. We understand there will be a period required to allow people to get used to the new system and staff will discuss requirements with anyone who visits after 15th May but hasn’t booked.”
