Commercial Traders

Unfortunately this Recycling Centre cannot be used to dispose of any commercial waste or recycling.

Any commercial type vehicles wishing to use any of Perth and Kinross Council's Recycling Centres must apply for the appropriate Recycling Permit. Information on the types of Permits offered, and how to apply can be found the Recycling Centre Permits page.

Commercial traders looking to recycle glass, rigid plastic packaging, metal packaging, paper and cardboard will have to do so at Friarton recycling centre.

Commercial traders are permitted to use the weighbridge at Friarton Depot to pay by cash (or enquire about setting up an account with the weighbridge operative) for the disposal of garden, general and inert waste (rubble, soil, stones) daily between the hours of 7:30am - 4pm (check festive opening arrangements for exceptions).
