Lunchtime closure remains – 1.15pm to 2pm each day – and the specific weekday closure at each site remains the same – please visit www.scotborders.gov.uk/recyclingcentres for full details.
Millions of Reasons to Recycle campaign
We have now launched our Millions of Reasons to Recycle campaign which is encouraging the public to get involved and put the right stuff in the right bin.
The local initiative aims to highlight the environmental and financial need to recycle, and what can and cannot be recycled.
Digital materials – based on graphics provided by Zero Waste Scotland – to guide households on what items can be recycled are now available at
