Recycling points

You can recycle items at Recycling Points across the city. Recycling Points have large bins with blue lids for mixed recycling. You can put all of the items listed below into the mixed recycling bins: 

  • Paper and cardboard. Please flatten cardboard boxes before putting them in the bin. Please do not leave any large bits of cardboard next to the bins. If your cardboard is too big to fit in the bin you can take it to one of the Recycling Centres.
  • Glass bottles and jars.
  • Plastic bottles, tubs and trays. Please rinse plastic bottles out and flatten them before recycling.
  • Food and drink cans, aerosol cans, foil trays and kitchen foil. Please make sure aerosol cans are empty and kitchen foil and foil trays are clean.

Some of the Recycling Points also have bins for recycling textiles or food and drink cartons (Tetra Paks). Recycling points are available for use 7 days a week, all year round. However, please consider nearby residents and only use them between 8am and 8pm.

Please do not leave anything by the side of the bins, even if they are full. This is flytipping and is illegal. To report full bins or flytipping at Recycling Points, please contact the Waste and Recycling Team or use our online flytipping reporting form.

Please note that the recycling banks for textiles and for food and drink cartons are not operated by Aberdeen City Council. Please call the telephone number on the bin if they are full.
