Aberdeenshire Council will open extra seasonal garden waste recycling points again this year, which will operate on Saturdays from April 18 to November 7 at the following locations:
Ballater: Roads Depot, South Deeside Road, 8-11am. Aboyne: Station Square Car Park, noon-3pm. Inverbervie: Beach Front Car Park, off Kirkburn, noon-3pm. St Cyrus: Ecclesgreig Road Car Park, 8-11am. Newtonhill: Bettridge Centre Car Park, 8-11.40am. Mintlaw: Council Depot, South Street, 8am-noon and 12.30-3pm. Portlethen: ASDA car park on Saturdays, 8am-3pm.
In previous years, an additional garden waste collection service has been offered on a Wednesday in Portlethen. Logistical difficulties mean that the Council is unable to provide this service for 2015.
Garden waste recycling facilities are also available throughout the year at all of the many Household Waste and Recycling Centres in Aberdeenshire. Locations and opening times at http://bit.ly/HWRCs.
