The premises are located straight ahead on the main entrance road to Balthane . Go past the first turning on the left and the warehouse is then the second building on the left between Pooil Vaaish Stone Products and the boatyard, easily recognised by the materials outside. Please ensure that the waste is correctly separated in the appropriate bins that are provided. Please also take care not to create litter.
Refuse collections are weekly, very early on Wednesday. Refuse should be restricted to putrescible material (kitchen rubbish) and small, light household items. Please ensure that bins are left out in sufficient time to meet the collection.
NOTE: Only one 240 litre bin per normal sized dwelling and a maximum of two per larger dwelling will be emptied "on the rates".
