Skips at public wharves

SIRA Waste Management team has had ongoing discussions about improvements to the Island’s waste collections. 

The issue of inappropriate materials being placed in the skips at wharves has been a long-standing problem.  The bins are continually overflowing due to illegal disposal of material. 

Council have now placed clear signage to advise residents of the correct use of these skips which are for household waste ONLY.  These skips are not for vegetation and building materials.

The 2022 Waste Calendars have also been placed at each wharf for collection by residents.

  • ·       Bulky Goods collections are February 7 and August 8
  • ·       Vegetation collections (hard sided containers and bundles, NOT BULKA BAGS) are March 7 and September 5

Please read the information detailing what material is appropriate and inappropriate for these collections.

SIRA is continuing to press for additional vegetation collections each year.
