Accessing Recycling Centres

Please note that permit holders accessing Recycling Centres with a vehicle and/or trailer of a length that is liable to cause delay or disruption to the operation of the site will be asked to wait until such time as the site can accommodate them. This may be the case particularly during the busy periods of 10am-12pm and 3pm-5pm Monday to Sunday. For information on opening days and times, visit our Recycling Centres pages.

Please note that all Commercial Permit holders disposing of waste and recycling (general, garden, inert or timber) at Friarton, Perth must use the weighbridge at the Depot, not the Recycling Centre.

Recycling Centre Payment Policy

Businesses and organisations wishing to dispose of chargeable wastes are reminded of the following policies:

  • Those paying for chargeable waste can only set up an invoice on their first visit. To dispose of chargeable waste after this, customers must either purchase pre-paid vouchers or use the Friarton Weigh Bridge.
  • Please note that if we have to issue an invoice, it will be for a full load regardless of how much material you are disposing of.
  • The most accurate and convenient way to pay is using the Friarton Weigh Bridge. This will allow you to pay for exactly what you have disposed on, using  alternative payment methods such as cash or credit or debit card.
