Waste Aware Aberdeenshire - Paper Recycling Kerbside Collection

82% of the people SWAG surveyed in Aberdeenshire told us that they would like to take part in a kerbside recycling collection.

Residents of Banchory, Ellon, Fraserburgh, Inverbervie, Inverurie, Laurenkirk and Peterhead can participate in this scheme.

The collection in Inverbervie and Laurencekirk starts on Saturday 7 August 2004.

The paper kerbside collection in Stonehaven has now been replaced with an improved kerbside recycling service (Add a link to the dry recyclates campaign)
