Kerbside recycling collections will be for plastic bottles next week (beginning on Monday 1 June).
Householders in Orkney Mainland, Burray and South Ronaldsay should put out a single green bin or box containing plastic bottles on their usual bin collection day.
Recycling collections resumed on Monday May 25 and are taking place weekly over a four-week period. Only one type of material will be collected each week.
“I’d like to thank everyone who put out their green bins and boxes for our teams to collect during week one,” said Andrew Drever, vice-chair of the Council’s Development and Infrastructure Committee.

That will be the pattern over the four-week period - and we'll provide plenty of reminders.
