New Mull waste collection routes will be introduced from Monday September 28.

‘Please be aware, not everyone’s calendar will change. The main changes affect Tobermory, Craignure and B8073. Please check your new calendar to be sure,’ said an Argyll and Bute Council spokesperson.

The new routes will create an even flow of waste through the processing site and off the island by spreading the uplift more equally across the three-weekly cycle.

It will also mean there will only be one return ferry journey per week required for a waste lorry, freeing up much-needed space for islanders and visitors.

‘We would be grateful if you could let friends and neighbours know changes are being introduced and that they should download their new calendar,’ added the spokesperson.
