Corona virus (Covid-19) Outbreak

We appreciate that the current corona virus outbreak is having a significant impact on the majority of businesses and is resulting in either seeing a change in usual custom or having to temporarily close down.

Your businesses waste production may well be affected by the circumstances we are all experiencing and as such please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance in amending your waste services to suit your business’s current needs.

Refsol is currently very much operational, we are taking all possible measures within our power to enable the continuity of the service and supporting our local authority as much as we possibly can.

Although our drivers and crews have been provided with PPE, we are trying to eliminate as much contact with customers as possible we ask that all correspondence be made to, business representatives e-mail accounts, or telephone numbers. Please refrain from approaching crews during this time. Our priority is the safety of all our staff, customers, and the public.

Recycling Centres and ipay – updated 27/03/20 – all centres closed for the next 7 days. 

The Council, in partnership with Fife Resource Solutions, has taken the decision to close all Recycling Centres in Fife with immediate effect . This is following the announcement by the Prime Minister and the First Minister on 23 March 2020 that every citizen must stay at home (except for very limited purposes). These closures are also in line with Scottish Government guidance on social distancing and are for the safety of everyone.

This applies to all Recycling Centres: Closed – Cowdenbeath, Closed – Cupar, Closed – Dalgety Bay, Closed – Dunfermline, Closed – Glenrothes, Closed – Kirkcaldy, Closed – Ladybank, Closed – Lochgelly, Closed – Methil, Closed – Pittenweem, Closed – St. Andrews

 Given the ongoing situation and impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) this information will be updated with further advice on disposal of HWRC waste when available.
