Brown bin collections have now changed as of Monday 30 September. Food waste is now collected in brown bins and collections are now every 2 weeks.
The change will increase recycling rates and reduce the amount of money being spent on sending household waste to landfill.
Request an assisted collection, additional/replacement blue/brown bins or additional grey bin capacity (red lid)

The roll out of a new colour separated glass recycling scheme throughout West Lothian is now underway.
Services are available to residents and businesses to remove all types of waste. Where waste and material for recycling is not being placed in bins, bins are not put out for collection or bins have been overfilled, rubbish can begin to accumulate in gardens, back yards and other areas.
