Operational Note: Household Collections

Essy kert dec 2021

With recycling and black bag collections missed in many areas last week due to weather conditions, Council staff will attempt to catch up on collections this week and most likely into next week.

Weather conditions last week, particularly in the North Mainland and the North Isles, have made collections impossible in many areas.  Staff will this week will attempt to collect from properties wherever access allows. 

Collections in Northmavine this week will be for black bags which were missed last week.  The paper and card collections scheduled for this week will take place on a later date.  

Collections in Yell on Tuesday and Wednesday are planned to go ahead as normal, again where possible, and this will also be for black bags that were due to be collected last week.  Paper and card collections will also be made at a later date. 

Shetland Islands Council would like to apologise to householders for any inconvenience.
