Aberdeen City Council has confirmed three tips will reopen to the public on Monday as Covid-19 restrictions are tentatively eased.
Facilities at Hazlehead, Bucksburn and Tullos will accept household waste and recycling as part of phase one of easing the coronavirus lockdown.
A limited range of materials will be taken at the tips to begin with, as a means of allowing proper social distancing between staff and visitors.
Council staff will only be accepting general household waste, non-electrical bulky items, garden rubbish and cardboard at first.
The centres will be open between 10am-7.45pm on weekdays and 9am-7.45pm at weekends.
However, Tullos will be closed on Wednesdays.
A spokesman said while restrictions had been relaxed, residents should only make a trip to the tip if waste cannot be stored safely at home and no alternative disposal was available.
Only one person per vehicle will be admitted and queuing, especially in the morning, is expected.
Proof of address will also be required.
The Scottish Government so-called route map out of lockdown, which was unveiled today, also allows more outdoor activities.
This has prompted council staff to begin cutting grass again, prioritising open spaces for leisure and cemeteries.
Council co-leader Jenny Laing said: “I am sure people will welcome the chance to again use public outdoor spaces for recreational purposes, the reinstatement of some key services in the community, and some businesses beginning to restart.
“What matters most is that we do this in a safe fashion by continuing to follow national guidance, accepting this will be a gradual process, requiring patience and understanding.
“The Council will share updates on our website and via social media as they become available, and I would urge everyone to familiarise themselves with the changes and to follow our channels as we move through the route map.”
