Recycling on Tiree

All local residents on Tiree should now have received a letter from A&B Council explaining the new bins and arrangements for their collection week beginning 24th August. Struthan Cottage visitors should take a note of the new bin collection days (as this Council news changes the info currently in our welcome pack about bin collection).

It’s uplifted every 2 weeks on a Tuesday around midday which alternates with your existing Green Bin. We’re in the process of replacing the small green bin we have with a larger one. In addition a dark grey bin will be provided for glass bottles and jars uplifted monthly. Phew! Confusing i know. We appreciate some visitors are only there on the island for a week, so basically the easy thing to remember is to put the 2 or 3 bins out at the side of the road on a Tuesday morning.  By recycling waste instead of sending it to landfill, you are helping save energy and reduce the risk of climate change to Tiree. Thanks.
