SHETLAND Islands Council has made changes to the collection days for household waste and recycling in parts of the South Mainland and Tingwall which are due to come into force from Monday (2 November).
The changes have been made to accommodate increased collection loads and changes to staffing arrangements as a result of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.
|Area||Current Day||New Day|
|Cunningsburgh (inc Blett Road)||Wednesday||Friday|
These changes will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Householders are asked to present bins as usual on the new collection day by 7.30am.
Shetland Islands Council said it would like to thank householders for their co-operation with these changes.
