Islay and Jura local recycling points

As well as the main recycling and civic amenity site for the area, there are a number of local recycling points in our communities where you can take items for recycling.

Please note - public glass recycling bins can now take mixed colours of glass bottles or jars - there is no need to separate different coloured glass bottles or jars for recycling. You can include metal caps/lids on empty glass bottles and jars when placing them in the glass recycling bins.
