Recycling and Waste Services

Recycling and Waste Services are responsible for the collection of all household waste and the environmentally responsible management of waste in line with the government's Zero Waste Plan. The service provides a weekly uplift to over 80,000 households and four weekly uplifts of garden waste (with the exception of the festive season) to the majority of households each year. It carries out around 21,000 bulky uplifts. The service has five Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) located throughout West Lothian where residents bring their own household waste for recycling. In addition, we have 175 glass recycling points and provide information and support to customers on how to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste.
