How to make a recycling centre booking

The booking system is open for all residents of Aberdeenshire for household waste only, with limits on commercial-type vehicle visits.

Businesses can sign up to a trade waste collection service or use the business waste drop-off service.

Find out about the trial changes to the recycling booking. These changes mean that you can visit some recycling centres without a booking or without a limit on number of visits.

You can book up to 7 days in advance. You can also visit within 15 minutes of making a booking. 

Do not visit without a booking for those sites that still require it as you won't be allowed entry. Some sites allow pedestrian access without a booking.

How to book

If you make a booking for a hire van please type in ‘HIRE VAN’ instead of the registration number. Please take your hire documentation with you. 

Book a slot

If you can't book online please ask a friend or relative to book for you or call our Wasteline on 03456 081207.
