Waste Collection

Waste Survey

The council is responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of household waste and recyclables produced on the Island - which is undertaken through a contract with Island Waste Services (a subsidiary of Biffa Municipal Ltd).  

As part of its commitment to ongoing service improvement, the council is seeking views on the current service as well as considerations for the future by conducting a local survey.
