New Service Roll Out Schedule

Following the successful introduction of the new waste and recycling service to Wigtownshire, we will continue to implement the service across the rest of the region in the following stages:

  • Stewartry - March 2021
  • Nithsdale - April 2021
  • Annandale and Eskdale - May 2021
  • Food Waste (Annan, Dalbeattie, Dumfries, Gretna and Lockerbie only) - Late Summer/Autumn 2021

You can find out more about the new service here .

Stewartry - March 2021

Residents in the Stewartry operational area will receive a flyer in the post w/c 22 February to let them know they will soon be receiving the new service.

We will deliver your new bins between 15 March and 3 April. Attached to one of your bins will be an information pack that contains a leaflet that provides information about how to take part in the new service and a collection calendar that shows when each bin will be emptied.

As soon as you receive your new bins you can begin using them.

You can find out what bins you can expect to get when the new service starts in your area by entering your postcode using the link below:
