As of the 1st June 2018, the Fountain Road recycling facility will no longer be in use.
For more information on waste and recycling please phone 01786 40 40 40 or visit stirling.gov.uk.
The recycling facility at Bridge of Allan is to be removed as part of an initiative to enhance the car park at the Co-op. Stirling Council Waste Services have experienced difficulties in maintaining high standards of cleanliness around these banks due to misuse and have subsequently taken the decision to remove them. The Service is committed to achieving the highest rate of recycling and would advise customers that an additional recycling box for glass is available on request. In addition to this, cans and plastic can be placed in your blue bin and paper and card can be placed in your green bin. Additional recycling facilities are also available at Lower Polmaise Waste Management Facility.

The marathon and half marathon are being supported by Stirling Council and in conjunction
with Great Run, and are expected to attract around 6,500 runners. The events will start from
