Seasonal closures for recycling points

Seasonal garden waste recycling points provided by Aberdeenshire Council will close later this month.

The last day of operation at each site will be Saturday, November 10.

The points affected are:

• Aboyne;

• Ballater;

• Inverbervie;

• Mintlaw;

• Newtonhill;

• Portlethen;

• St Cyrus.

While the seasonal sites are closed, residents can still recycle their garden waste free of charge throughout the year at the Household Waste and Recycling Centres (HWRC).

For information on the location of HWRCs, how to buy discounted home composters, or other ideas to reduce garden waste, go to or phone Wasteline on 0845 600 3 900.

Please note the waste disposal site in Ballater was transferred back to the Church Square car park, from the council roads depot, on October 27. Garden waste can still be taken to the site, but cannot be separated.
