Aberdeenshire companies can dispose of trade waste at three council sites from next week

Aberdeenshire businesses will be able to get rid of their trade waste at three council sites from next week.

Although residents have been able to use a booking system to dispose of their household rubbish at recycling centres for some time now, business waste is not accepted at any of them.

From next Tuesday, companies will be able to use the authority’s waste transfer stations in Banchory, Ellon and Macduff, where material will be weighed and costed accordingly.

Ros Baxter, waste manager at Aberdeenshire Council, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide this additional service to businesses ahead of time, as business waste has not been accepted at any at any of the recycling centres since the booking system was put in place to enable physical distancing.

“We will initially accept cardboard, garden waste, rubble, soil, wood, plasterboard and non-recyclable waste on three mornings a week, but we will keep an eye on the new service and revise it if required to better meet the needs of businesses.

“We are keen to continue our efforts to increase recycling by providing more recycling facilities for businesses.”

No pre-booking will be required, and businesses can dispose of their waste on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7.30am to 10.30am.
