Zero Waste TT Races

Help the TT Festival be a low Carbon Footprint event.

Every year hundreds of visitors attend the Isle of Man TT races to watch the spectacular racing and enjoy all the attractions of the festival.

The event is a difficult time for the kerbside collection teams due to restricted access to areas and the fact that the recycling yard is inaccessible during road closures.

During the TT Festival the Islands bring banks continue to be available for use. In the Douglas and Braddan areas they are located at the following sites.

  • Braddan Commissioners offices, Close Corran
  • Union Mills Trading Estate, Opposite Union Mills Post Office
  • Edan Park Garden Centre
  • Eastern Civic Amenity Site, Middle River.
  • Tescos car park Lake Rd Douglas
  • The Bowl car park Pulrose Rd
  • Shoprite Victoria Rd
  • Lord St car park
  • Loch Promenade

The Kerbside Collection team will also collect items in the weeks following TT if they are left in bags alongside your kerbside boxes.
Please ensure each bag contains only one type of material ie Cans, or bottles but not mixed. This is for safety reasons.
Please do not place broken glass in your collection boxes or bags.
