Household Waste Recycling Centres


Dundee City Council currently operates the following Household Waste Recycling Centres within the city.

  • Baldovie Recycling Centre, Piper Street, Dundee, Map
  • Riverside Recycling Centre, Wright Avenue, Dundee, Map

The opening hours for the household waste recycling centres are:

  • 1st October to 31st March
    Monday to Sunday 9.00 am to 4.15pm
  • 1st April to 30th September
    Monday to Friday 9.00am to 8.15pm
    Saturday and Sunday 9.00am to 5.15pm

The two sites provide householders with the opportunity to recycle a range of household waste free of charge. All sites have trained operatives on the site at all times who can provide assistance and advice as required. Your continued support is very much appreciated.

To make it easier for householders to recycle as much as possible, separate containers are provided at each of the sites for specific recyclable waste types. Householders are encouraged to segregate their waste and use these facilities whenever possible. A separate bin or container is available on these sites for the following items:
