1 - 8. All our household waste and recycling collections are operated in-house, along with our main transfer station at Moycroft, manned and unmanned recycling centres, street cleaning and final disposal operations at our landfill site at Dallachy.

Our green and food waste is disposed of to Keenans Recycling, New Deer, under a 3 year contract started on 1st April 2010, with an option to extend by 12 months. Delivery to Keenans is again in-house.

Our cans, plastics, paper & card all go to SAICA NATUR based in Kirkcaldy, (formally known as Securecycle). Again this is a 3 year contract started on 1st Sept 2010, with an option to extend by 12 months, which we have agreed to. Transportation is within the current contract.

Our mixed glass is transported through a contract with Ballie Bros, Elgin, to Viridor Glass Recycling at Bonnyrigg, Mid-Lothian, with tender review due in 6 months.
