Western road closure - 9 April 2018 - 27 May 2018
On Monday 9 April, the Western Road recycling depot will close for seven weeks.
This temporary closure is necessary to ensure public safety while we progress with essential works required for the upgrade and improvement of our recycling facilities.
We have two recycling centres in East Ayrshire:
- Western Road, Kilmarnock, KA3 1LL
- Skares Road, Garlaff, near Cumnock, KA18 2RB
Both centres contain recycling containers for a wide variety of materials. Each container/bay is clearly labelled. To make the sorting process easy it is important that only the correct recyclates go into each container.
If you are unsure which container to use, check with the site attendants as they will be happy to help you.
You can deposit all household material free of charge.
You may use the general waste skips on sites to deposit your excess general waste. However, no commercial waste is accepted at either recycling centre.
Bookings for commercial type vehicles
If you drive a commercial type vehicle (i.e. any van or pickups, liveried cars, or vehicles with trailers) you must book an appointment to access the recycling centres . This includes if you are a resident who is hiring a vehicle.
Make a booking on our recycling appointment website

Recycling points at local supermarkets can be accessed at any time.
