RNLI lifeboats and the Rathlin Ferry will still operate as required.

All RDCA Members

The trustees of the RDCA have taken what we hope will be seen as a sensible decision to postpone this years AGM until later in the year. We understand the meeting is overdue but hope everyone understands given the current situation.

All usual AGM business is postponed until that later time including nominations and potential elections for those wishing to join the board.

Update on Waste Collections

Waste Collections on Rathlin

No-one on the Island has up to date training to operate the council bin lorry so it can't be used. The council are happy for Stewart (Thanks Stewart) to use the cage lorry door to door for Black and Blue bins (mixed is acceptable).

If people want to continue recycling then bins will be available at the harbour to stockpile that material once their own bin is full, people will have to take their own blue waste to the harbour.
