Community skips are available for your area through your Community Council or Residents Association. Once the skip has been agreed through the relevant community group, a locked community skip will be sited in various locations in your local area and will be available for the disposal of items of bulky household waste at set times. The skip will be supervised at all times when it is unlocked.
The skip will be available for waste disposal at agreed times which will be publicised by your local Community Council or Residents Association.
This service is for the disposal of bulky household wastes only. The disposal of Commercial and Industrial wastes into the Community Skip is strictly prohibited.
Advice is provided in the document attached below for the disposal of waste materials not permitted for disposal into the skip. For more detailed information, please contact the Zero Waste Western Isles team on 01851 70 99 00. In the Uists, please contact 01870 604998.
For this service to continue, it must be used responsibly. Misuse of the skip will result in the service being withdrawn.
The skip will be monitored and any waste materials left at or near to the skip will be regarded as Fly-tipping and reported to the Police and SEPA.
If you see any instance of Fly-tipping, please telephone Zero Waste Western Isles team on 01851 70 99 00 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
