There are 4 fully manned Recycling Centres at the Cleansing Depots in South Ayrshire.
Civic Amenity sites are provided for use by householders to dispose of items that the refuse and recycling crew are unable to collect. The sites are located in Ayr, Troon, Maybole and Girvan.

Due to new European Legislation, there are now special arrangements in place for the disposal of fridges, freezers and fridge freezers from domestic properties.

Household collection of fridges can be requested by contacting the special uplift service.

If you can, take the unit yourself to one of the Recycling Centres. There is no charge to leave it there.

Fridge freezers intended for disposal should be free of all foodstuffs and care should be taken to ensure that the coolant pipes at the back of the units are not fractured or damaged during transit.

Remember that fly-tipping is illegal and dumped refrigerators and freezers can pose a real hazard to children or animals who may become harmed or trapped inside.

Please use the Green Bin or you can arrange a special waste uplift
