IOM Government Medium Term Response to COVID -19



Northern Civic Amenity Site opens this Saturday 25th April

for burnable and green waste only


- no access without appointment.

- appointments must be booked via www.ramsey.gov.im or telephone 810100 during office hours - Monday to Thursday 8.30am to 5pm - Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm. 

Bookings can be made from 1pm on Thursday 23rd April 2020. 


In order to operate the site safely there will be a number of operational restrictions including a limit of the number of vehicles allowed on site at any time, the type of waste which can be accepted and the requirement that all visitors to the site must book an arrival slot.

Additional Guidance

Residents will have to book a slot to get access to the site as stated above; this is to prevent people queueing and blocking the main road and potentially hindering emergency services.  Slots have been made available for the next two weeks, however this will be reviewed constantly and added to as necessary depending on the Covid 19 restrictions.

3 cars will be allowed on site at any one time and they will only have 10 minutes to unload their vehicle.  There will be 3 staff members on site, 1 on the machine/shop floor, 1 at the gate and 1 on traffic control

Staff will do everything possible to manage this situation smoothly, but they will not be able to assist you with your itmes, so please bring a member of your household to help if you cannot manage on your own.

The re-use sheds and recycling bring banks will remain closed for the time being on the site.

Bring Banks around the island will be open from Friday 24th April 2020.

The authorities understand how frustrating this has been for everyone and thank you for your co-operation. 




The Commissioners have received a letter from the Borough Library offering free on line access to our ratepayers.

Your help requested from the Northern Parishes Refuse Collection Service

Covid 19

To keep the drivers safe they are requesting that we share the following message

If all residents would please put their bins on the edge of their properties, so that     the bin men can collect them easily. They will not be able to go and get them from near the house. To assist further please wipe the bin handles down when placing them out for collection and then wipe the bin handles again before you touch them to bring your bin back to your property.  Every little bit of cleaning helps.

Thank you


Rates Information

Increased costs account for the rise in rates for Lezayre residents

Residents in Lezayre will see their rates increase by 7p in the pound from April.  This is the largest increase since 2015 when the Local Authorities took on services transferred from the Department of Infrastructure.  Since then, there have been minimal increases as most costs have been absorbed and not passed on.

The new rate, set at 92p in the pound is mainly due to the increased charges at the Northern Civic Amenity Site, some of which are controlled by Government and some which are beyond our control.

An additional outlay for this year is the cost of a possible election, which is approximately 2p in the pound.

The rate fixed at 92p in the pound compares favourably with other similar sized Local Authorities.

Refuse Rates 

We have been advised by the Northern Parishes Refuse Collection Board of in increase in refuse rates.  An increase of 5p in the pound on the rateable value from 62p to 67p and an increase in the fixed fee from of £3 from £45 to £48.
