Bin Collections Bin Collections - Winter 2018-19
❄️♻️❄️A seasonal change is coming to your brown bin collection, starting in December. ❄️♻️❄️

Winter collections mean that Fifers will see their brown compost/food waste bins collected every four weeks, starting from the week of 10 Dec 2018.

Two-weekly collections will resume the week of 4 March 2019. Please visit Fife Council's website FifeDirect to access your updated bin calendar with collection days.

There is very little garden waste over the winter, which means that there is less demand for this service. By responding, resources can be redirected to support other waste collection services, which are sometimes stretched due to adverse weather conditions. It also means that the council’s recycling points will be serviced more often, particularly during the busy festive season. Find out more: here.

Having less green waste in kerbside brown bins over the winter means bin collection lorries are not full, so we have the opportunity to maximise the use of resources, while reducing our environmental impact. There shouldn't be a problem storing food waste over cooler months. As always, the waste should only be placed in compostable liners or newspaper and the bin lid should be kept closed. You can also visit LoveFoodHateWaste for ideas to to reduce food waste..

Grit Bin Grit Bin Cuts Proposed by Fife Council
Residents are concerned about the proposed rationalisation, or cuts, to grit bin provision across our area. One resident commented, "This looks like a desk exercise without any local knowledge of the severe impacts that will be caused".

You can view the Fife Council proposals here. The Council deadline for feedback was late July and Fife Council is reviewing their decisions following your feedback.

Food Waste Food Waste Bags:
Fife Council is currently experiencing delays in delivering food waste in West Fife.

Fifers are now able to pick up food waste bags with their books next time they visit the library, and after their swim at leisure centres in Fife.

Resource Efficient Solutions (RES), Fife Councils arms-length company, have teamed up with Fife Cultural Trust (FCT) and Fife Sports and Leisure Trust (FSLT) to sell food waste bags for Fife Council supplied caddies through ONFife libraries and Fife’s leisure centres. The bags are sold for £1.30 per roll of 25 bags.

Simon Jeynes, Technical Officer for Resource Efficient Solutions, said: “Food waste bags will now be available from ONFife libraries as well as at Leisure Centres in Fife.

“We are continuing to look at the best way to provide food waste bags to households in Fife and will monitor the sale of food waste bags to help us decide how best to provide them in the long term.

We hope that Fife Council is not reneging on its role as waste collector for the tax payers of Fife?

Bridge Crack


Kingseat Bridge Crack:
The Community Council was alerted at their November meeting to defects spotted on the Kingseat Road bridge which crosses the old Townhill railway track. Cllr Gavin Ellis took this matter up with colleagues at Fife Council and an engineer's inspection was carried out the next day. We are pleased to report that Fife Council are satisfied that the defect is superficial and they have previously noted this when routinely inspecting the bridge.

These types of defect can occur when uneven settlement occurs but as long as they are superficial in nature then they pose no threat to road users or pedestrians.

Community Council Secretary, Graeme Whyte, said "It was reassuring that this matter had been acted upon so quickly and with such a positive outcome. We thank the engineers at Fife Council and Cllr Ellis for acting so quickly on this matter."
