Temporary closure of Western Road recycling depot

On Tuesday 25 September, the Western Road recycling depot in Kilmarnock will close weekdays, with every effort being made to return to normal operating hours prior to the Christmas period.


These reduced opening hours arrangements are necessary to ensure public safety while we progress with phase two of the essential works required for the upgrade and improvement of our recycling facilities.

A number of buildings on site, including the large cardboard sorting shed and two former office buildings will be demolished during this phase of the works.

This will make way for improved facilities for our employees who sort your recycling and ensure that all users have easier and safer access to the site.

Extended hours will operate at weekends for the duration of the closure. Western Road recycling depot will be open 8am to 5.50pm, Saturday and Sundays and our waste management site at Garlaff, Skares, KA18 2RB will be open as normal.

For the duration of the closure, the Waste Management Services helpline -01563 554033 will be operating during office hours Monday to Friday, providing communities with advice and support.

We apologise for any disruption or inconvenience these essential works may cause, and thank you for your patience as we work to upgrade the Western Road Depot.
