Community Conversations

Waste and Recycling

Dumfries and Galloway Council is developing a new kerbside recycling service to be rolled out across the whole region in late 2020 or early in 2021. It is also proposing changes to the opening hours for Household Waste Recycling Centres. 

We will be running a series of Community Conversation events, visiting every ward during October and November 2019, to explain the new service, to listen to ideas, comments and suggestions on the waste service and on the potential opening hours for the Household Waste Recycling Centres.

The dates for these 'drop in' sessions are as follows and everyone is welcome to attend.

We held Community Conversations across all Wards in Dumfries and Galloway in Spring 2019 on Streetscene and Clean DG.

The feedback documents set out where we are making changes and improvements to our service as a result of your input - thank you.
