Recycling points

Please do not leave anything next to bins. This is flytipping and is illegal. Large items such as cardboard, furniture and black bag waste should be taken to your nearest Household Waste and Recycling Centre. Find your nearest household waste and recycling centre. 

You can recycle items at Recycling Points listed below. You can put all the items listed into the large bins with blue lids 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. Cans can be crushed or uncrushed.
  • For information on recycling other items find your nearest household waste and recycling centre here

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 as this is flytipping. 

If the recycling banks for textiles are not operated by Aberdeen City Council. Please call the telephone number on the bin if they are full.
