Waste Aware Stirling - Kerbside Recycling

Thank you for helping us to get it sorted...

Thanks to the efforts of local residents recycling in the Stirling Council area has increased by 100% since
April 2003.

Vast amounts of your cans, glass, foil, paper, plastic milk bottles and textiles have been recycled into new products whilst your garden waste and cardboard have been composted together and used as soil conditioner.

Stirling Council will be continuing to rollout their kerbside recycling service to as many households as possible over the next year.

The next phase of Stirling Council’s kerbside recycling scheme started to roll out on the 19th of April 2003.

WHAT can I recycle?

The following items can be recycled using your recycling box:

  • Cans (aluminium & steel)
  • Clean foil
  • Glass (bottles & jars)
  • Paper (brochures, catalogues, envelopes, junk mail, magazines, newspapers & office quality paper)
  • Plastic milk bottles (& other bottles with the HDPE symbol)
  • Textiles (blankets, clothing, curtains, pairs of shoes - tied together, rags, sheets & towels)

The following items can be recycled using your brown bin:

  • Cardboard
  • Flowers & plants
  • Garden prunings
  • Garden weeds
  • Grass clippings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Leaves
  • Wood shavings
  • Yellow pages
  • Christmas trees
WHEN can I recycle?

Your recycling box will be emptied weekly on your normal collection day.
Your brown bin will be emptied fortnightly on your normal collection day.
Collection of your existing green or grey bin will change to fortnightly once your brown bin collections start as you will then be able to recycle most of your household waste.
