Mobile Recycling Service

Closed 12 Jan 2020

Opened 8 Sep 2019


Scottish Borders Council is considering the provision of a mobile recycling service to support the Council's 7 Community Recycling Centres.

It is proposed that the service would be provided one day a week at the following locations:

  • Jedburgh
  • Coldstream
  • West Linton
  • Lauder
  • Newcastleton

The focus of the mobile recycling service is to faciltate increased recycling. It would do this by increasing access to recycling facilities to those who live further away from the existing Community Recycling Centres.  Due to the focus on recycling, this service will not accept general non-recyclable waste.

Why we are consulting

The aim of this survey is to gather feedback from residents to help inform future decisions regarding service provision.
