Aberdeenshire Council seasonal garden waste points to open on Saturday April 10

Aberdeenshire Council has released details of its seasonal garden waste points for the summer.

They will reopen on Saturday, April 10 and while there is no need to book, traffic management and physical-distancing measures will apply at all sites and visitors are being advised to stay in their vehicle until called forward.

Staff will be unable to assist with any unloading or lifting.

These sites are only to be used for grass clippings and small trimmings - not for larger trees and bushes which take up too much space and which should be taken to one of our household recycling centres.

Visitors should not arrive before the opening times to enable council operatives to have traffic management measures in place.

The sites at Aboyne and Ballater are now being operated on a half-day basis.

The site at the transport museum in Alford will continue operating until the new recycling centre opens.
