Entry to site

The use of this facility is free of charge to residents, but due to the significant cost to the Council of disposing of the waste it receives, it is essential that the facility is used by local residents only.

From January 2021 drivers must produce photo ID plus proof of residency in Clackmannanshire, for example one of the following:

  • current full driver’s licence
  • Disabled person’s parking badge issued by Clackmannanshire Council
  • National Entitlement Card issued by Clackmannanshire Council

Also acceptable:

  • Other photo ID plus a current Council Tax bill or a Recycling Centre Access Card
    • Note that existing Recycling Centre Access cards can be used until further notice as additional proof, but that new or replacement cards are no longer being issued.

ID will be examined by our staff only for the purposes of allowing access only, and will not be copied or recorded in any way.

Where the driver is not a Clackmannanshire resident but are carrying waste of behalf of a passenger in the vehicle, the passenger must produce evidence of residency as listed above.

The Council reserves the right to make further enquiries concerning the ownership of the waste, and may deny access to Forthbank.

Where suitable evidence cannot be produced, entry to Forthbank will be denied. If you are having difficulty in providing appropriate evidence please email or telephone 01259 450000 for further assistance.
