Commercial Waste Disposal

The rules have changed with regards to the way in which businesses can deal with their waste in Fife. As of 3rd October 2016, commercial waste will no longer be accepted at the vast majority of Fife Council owned recycling centres. The disposal of commercial waste will be limited to sites at Dunfermline, Thornton and St Andrews. In order to access these sites, a pre-arranged booking must be made. All current season tickets will be cancelled.

Recycle Fife is Fife’s premier recycling & waste management companies with multi-material recycling facilities-based at Cartmore Industrial Estate, Lochgelly.

Having reviewed these new policies and after speaking to our customers and listening to their needs, we are pleased to announce the expansion of our Commercial Waste Drop-off service. 

Should you choose Recycle Fife, we will do all in our power to help you manage your business waste reliably, responsibly and affordably.

Due to recent changes in commercial waste our new service will include the following key features: 

  • Our prices are at least 20% lower than civic amenity sites
  • No Pre-Booking required
  • No Season Ticket needed – Just pay as you go!
  • Longer Opening hours - 7am to 6pm.
  • Centrally Located Facility at Cartmore Industrial Estate, Lochgelly, KY5 8LL with ease of access to the A92
  • Custom Built Multi-Material Recycling Facilities

Our friendly & knowledgeable staff will help to take care of your every need.
