Bernera Refuse Collection Update

Following on from the weight restriction of 7.5T being placed on the Bernera Bridge the Comhairle intend to carry out refuse collections tomorrow as scheduled. The Comhairle are working closely with Bernera Community Council, Bernera Community Association and other local volunteers to collect household bins and take them to the Earshader side of the bridge to be emptied. 

It is asked that householders mark their bins with their address (number & village) to ensure that the correct bins are returned. Where there is a group of houses together such as Dun Innes or Heath Park, bins may be returned to the carpark for householders to collect.

If a householder does not have their bins emptied on Tuesday or do not get their bins returned, they can contact

It is expected that there will be a suitable collection vehicle in service for the next collection on 8th September and a recycling bank relocated to the Earshader side of the bridge.

The Comhairle would like to thank all the residents of Bernera for their patience and understanding while we work on maintaining waste and recycling services.
