Business Collections & Eco Charter

We can provide a regular collection service for cans and plastic bottles, which compliments what the Council already provide for glass and paper and cardboard.

We offer the service on either a weekly or fortnightly basis and collection frequency can be reduced during the winter months as necessary.   A 240 litre wheelie bin is provided by MESS, one each for plastics and cans.  The only cost to your business is the price for collection of each bin as required.

Benefits to your business include –

  • reducing the amount of your waste being landfilled
  • improving the green credentials of your business
  • supporting a local social enterprise.

The Mull and Iona Eco-Charter scheme has been set up byMulland Iona Chamber of Commerce and the MESS project to recognise local businesses which adopt and pursue ecological approaches to their activities. To view the Eco-Charter certificate click here

If you recycle your cardboard, cans and bottles, use low energy light bulbs, compost your food and kitchen waste and use recycled products, then your already well on the way to being able to sign up to Eco-Charter.  The cost of the subscription is £12 per annum, and is used to cover the cost of the administration of the scheme, any surplus supports the work of the MESS project.
