Friarton Weighbridge temporary closure

The Friarton Weighbridge will be temporarily closed to commercial customers from 18 to 21 August due to on-going re-surfacing works.  

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused while these works are completed.

Commercial Recycling Centre Permit Renewal

From 5 February Commercial Recycling Centre permit holders will be able to renew their permits online for 2021-22. We advise customers to complete this process before 5 March to ensure any supporting documents are viewed and verified to avoid any disruption to service.

If you are unable to renew online, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 01738 476476.

Customers disposing of chargeable wastes (garden, general, inert or timber) will be required to purchase pre-paid vouchers, or use and pay (by credit or debit card) for wastes over the Friarton Weighbridge. Please ensure you use any existing vouchers as these will expire on 31 March 2021 and are non-refundable. The price of vouchers for 2021-22 will be uploaded to the Commercial Permit pages on 1 April 2021. 

If you have a Domestic Exemption permit, you are only required to update or renew if you have changes to your vehicle or circumstances.

Please remember strict COVID procedures are in place at all of our sites. Permits should be displayed in the windscreen of your vehicle either on an A4 sized print out or on a tablet.

Upon your contact we will be happy to make temporary changes or postponements to contracts to support your business needs. Please note that we are currently receiving a high volume of calls and may take longer than usual to process requests; any changes made to contracts will be back dated to the date of the original request.
