A £1.2 million fleet of eight bin lorries has taken to the streets as changes to Aberdeen’s waste and recycling services got under way.
As of last Monday, all refuse, garden waste and recycling collection routes have changed and householders should now be using their new collection calendars.
New general waste bins are also being delivered across the city at a rate of around 2,000 per day.
The existing refuse bins will then be re-designated as mixed recycling bins which will replace the current box and bag service.
Infrastructure vice-convener Gordon Graham said: “We have invested £1.2m in the new fleet as part of our huge commitment to achieving our zero waste ambitions and statutory obligations.”
