“Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are having to introduce changes to our waste and recycling services over the coming weeks depending on staffing levels and the government guidance.
“Like the rest of the country, the council is operating in emergency mode. Please help us by only contacting the council in an emergency. Our most critical public services are still being delivered in extremely challenging circumstances.

Burntisland’s various food retailers are doing a fabulous job of staying open and doing their best to get supplies and also adapting to the latest guidance on staying safe.
This is important for shoppers and ESPECIALLY staff.
You may only visit shops for a few minutes, but staff are present for HOURS.
If you have symptoms DON’T GO OUT.
Shops are restricting the number of people in at one time, RESPECT THIS – even if YOU think this is INCONVENIENT, you are NOT special.
When queuing outside maintain the recommended TWO METRES apart.
If you don’t already, make a list to reduce the chances of needing to go back to a shop because you have forgotten something.
Use contactless rather than cash if you can.
Can you get offer to get messages for a neighbour?
