Brechin recycling centre
There is a general waste skip at Brechin Recycling Centre for a temporary period to support Brechin residents with the disposal of flood damaged materials. This resource will be specifically for those residents who have been affected by the flooding.
We also want to remind people that they should not dispose of any items that are subject to an insurance claim until they are authorised to do so by their insurers.

Safety and assistance
Sort your waste before you travel so:
- your visit is as brief is possible
- you put the right stuff in the right skip
When you arrive
Staff will ask what items you have with you then direct you to the unloading area.
They may also ask you to fill in a form to certify your waste is not commercial waste.
Staff will offer help and advice. However you are responsible for offloading your waste (including bulky or heavy items) and ensuring it goes in the right container.
Please be kind to site staff.
Anyone not following site rules will be asked to leave.
- No wheeled bins - emptying wheeled bins into skips is unsafe
- Ensure that you are finished offloading any material before closing time
No pedestrian access. The volume of traffic entering and leaving the centre can make pedestrian access unsafe.
Help with unloading items
Please bring someone with you if you need help offloading items at the centre.
We are unable to provide physical assistance. This is so we can:
- manage the risk of injury to our staff
- make sure they are available to monitor site rules are being followed
- ensure staff are visible to visitors requiring advice
