Aberdeenshire Council will open extra seasonal garden waste recycling points again this year around Aberdeenshire.
The recycling has been a hot topic in the area for the past couple of weeks with the council being accused of backward thinking following their decision to stop collecting glass from the kerbside.
The recycling points will be operation from the middle of April to the start of November.
There will be recycling points at Ballater’s Roads Depot, South Deeside Road, from 8-11am and Aboyne’s Station Square Car Park from noon-3pm.
In other locations, the seasonal garden waste recycling points will operate on Saturdays from April 19 to November 8, including at Newtonhill: Bettridge Centre Car Park, 8-11.40am
Garden waste recycling facilities are also available throughout the year at Household Waste and Recycling Centres in Aberdeenshire.
