    PRESS RELEASE
    Local Authority Waste Services
    Over the next few days the local authorities will be ready to re-open the four Civic Amenity sites around the island.
    The Eastern and Western sites will open at 8am on Friday morning and the Northern and Southern sites at 10am on Saturday morning.
    Please be aware that the Northern site will operate on an appointments system accessed using their website or by ringing 810100, whilst the Eastern, Southern and Western sites will operate on a queuing system using the roadway leading to the site.
    Due to operational issues the opening hours and the types of waste that can be disposed of may vary slightly, but they will all take burnable household waste and green waste. This is not business as usual, so to avoid an unnecessary journey please ring your local authority or check their website or Facebook page for details.
    It is important that people work within the social distancing guidelines and therefore there will be a restricted number of vehicles on site.
    The staff will do everything possible to manage this situation smoothly but they will not be able to assist you with your items so please bring a household member to help you if you cannot manage on your own.
    The Re-use sheds and on site Bring Banks will remain closed for the time being but the recycle Bring Banks around the island will open on Friday.
    Please be careful when driving in these areas, expect queues over the first few weeks and be patient.
    The Authorities understand how frustrating this has been for everyone and thank you for your co-operation.
