The cost of waste and recycling collections is not included in the business rates so there is a separate charge for these.

Street bins are provided for domestic use only. Businesses are not permitted to use these bins to dispose of any of their waste. If you use these bins you would not be complying with the Duty of Care legislation and you could be fined.

Recycling Points are for household waste and recycling only. As a business or organisation, you are not permitted to use them unless express permission has been granted by Aberdeen City Council. Aberdeen City Council Household Waste Recycling Centres are not licensed to take commercial waste. Businesses and organisations are not permitted to use them.

If you own your bin then it is your responsibility to replace it if it is damaged. If you would like to buy a new one, please contact us.
