A limited kerbside recycling service will commence in Braddan from this week.

Please note that the recycling day is changing to a THURSDAY.

The first collection will be this Thursday, 21 May 2020.

Initially the service will be for glass bottles and cans only, and we would gratefully request that both materials are rinsed and placed in separate boxes.

Please do not leave any recycling out in bags, use you boxes and/or trolleys only.

The reason for this temporary change is to eliminate the risk of handling material which could be contaminated with the virus.

Having boxes contain a single material type enables the content to be tipped direct in to the hopper without needing to separate by hand.

For plastic and paper, please note that in the short term these can be disposed of at the IOM Governments bring banks situated around the Island, a list of which can be viewed by clicking on the following link:

We are writing out to all residents today with the new recycling calendar.
