Roadworks Impacting Collections

Please Note: With the increasing number of roadworks taking place in West Lothian at the moment it is essential that you place your bins outside the roadworks area for them to be emptied.  We will not return for any bins which are not outside this area as it is your responsibility to ensure that they are accessible for us to uplift them. Current road works causing issues with collections include (but are not limited to):


Road closures can cause disruption to your bin collection services. Due to their nature they vary depending on the scale of works and the methods that the contractor uses to undertake their work. You should present your bins for collection at the nearest point which can be accessed by our refuse collection vehicles. This is either outside of the closure section itself or in a designated location that the contractor has provided for access to be maintained.

Factors can impact upon bin collections including indiscriminate car parking, bin lorry vehicle breakdowns, road closures and public holidays. Should the above information still not result in a resolution, please let us know using our online form:

How will I be notified?

Any disruptions to normal bin collections will be listed in the table above.

In the event of severe weather any changes to the service will be notified here, via Facebook, Twitter, email alert and local media.

How are collections prioritised during a disruption?

Our priority uplifts during a period of disruption to collections will depend on the time of year, for example in winter the priority will be grey bins, followed by blue bins and then brown bins. This may change during summer months when brown bins are utilised more with food and garden waste and may become a greater priority for uplift. 

During severe weather our collection vehicles will experience the same issues as any other vehicles and they may not be able to access streets to empty containers and bins.

Please present your bin on your normal collection day and leave it out until it is emptied.

If necessary, we will put in place alternative arrangements and give advice on these pages about how you should deal with your waste.

You can check your blue, grey and brown bin collection calendars.

What can I do in the event of a disruption?

Should you wish to dispose of your recycling or waste during a disruption to bin collections you can take items to your local recycling centre.

These are located in: Broxburn, Blackburn, Linlithgow, Oakbank in Livingston, and Whitburn.

You can also help by sharing information with your friends, family and neighbours.
