Closure of Monifieth and Kirriemuir Recycling Centres

Friday 21 April, 2023

Recycling centres at Monifieth and Kirriemuir will close next month on a permanent basis, in order to deliver savings that will help sustain the provision of other essential Angus Council services.

As of 4pm on Sunday 14 May, centres at Riverview Drive, Monifieth and Bellies Brae, Kirriemuir will permanently close, as agreed at a Special Meeting of Angus Council in March, making a saving of nearly £100k per year.

The decision was made based on the high cost of running the facilities relative to the volume of waste collected and number of vehicles visiting, and due to the close proximity of alternatives for residents in these areas.

For residents in Monifieth, Carnoustie Recycling Centre and Baldovie Recycling Centre in Dundee can be used instead. For residents in Kirriemuir, Forfar Recycling Centre will be the nearest alternative.

In addition, Carnoustie Recycling Centre will accept non-recyclable (general) waste from 15 May.
