Recycling and Waste services in Aberdeenshire offer polystyrene recycling at several recycling centres.

Due to the success of a polystyrene recycling trial, this has now seen an expansion of the service to the following sites:

◾️ Fraserburgh

◾️ Peterhead

◾️ Ellon

◾️ Inverurie

◾️ Stonehaven

◾️ Portlethen

◾️ Banchory

The contractor, Styropack, also hosts a collection point outside their Craigshaw Road depot in Aberdeen’s West Tullos Industrial Estate.

The centres accept Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) only, which includes all polystyrene packing materials such as shape-moulded packaging, blocks and planks of fill materials, packing boxes and packaging balls.

Centres will not accept any polystyrene containers contaminated with food, takeaway packaging, biodegradable or compostable packing chips, or Styrofoam cups.

Remember to make a booking before visiting a recycling centre.

To make a booking, visit www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/recyclingcentrebookings or call our Wasteline at 03456 081207.
