Our recycling centres at Western Road, Kilmarnock and at Garlaff near Cumnock accept the following materials:
- car batteries
- household batteries
- fridges and freezers - there is a charge for the disposal of white goods
- fluorescent light tubes and bulbs
Household batteries will also be collected from the kerbside via the black box. Please ensure that batteries are contained within a tied or sealed bag before placing in the black box as loose batteries present a Health and Safety risk to collection crews and will not be collected. You can collect a battery disposal bag from any of our local Customer Service Centres, neighbourhood housing offices or Cleansing Services office.
We do not offer a hazardous waste collection service to commercial customers. All enquiries regarding hazardous waste should be made to the Scottish Environmental Protection Authority (SEPA).
