From Monday 22nd June, your bin collections will go back to your normal schedule of green bin collections every 3 weeks, and blue bin / recycling bag collections every 2 weeks

Kerbside glass recycling on Tiree will resume at a future date. For the time being, if possible, please use public collection points for glass bottles and jars if you cannot keep the recycling at home.

Please ignore any glass collection dates showing up on this page, as kerbside glass collections have not currently restarted on Tiree
