Seafield recycling centre access changes
The Fillyside Road entrance is no longer in use and residents need to access the recycling centre from 76 Seafield Road, EH6 7LW. The new (permanent) entrance/exit has been created because of the redevelopment of the depot and the opening of the waste transfer station.
We are building transfer stations at Sighthill and Seafield recycling centres. We are also carrying out other works to make the sites easier to use. We are sorry for any inconvenience the works may cause you.
Seafield waste transfer station should be opening in early June 2019 and Sighthill waste transfer station is due to open by July 2019. Access to the recycling centres will change when these waste transfer stations open, but they will remain open.
