Staff will control access to facilities and limit the number of cars on site at any one time. No vans or trailers will be allowed. In light of the temporary arrangements, householders are asked to be patient and respectful to site staff. Any abusive behaviour towards staff will not be tolerated. Householders will be required to offload their own waste to maintain social distancing. Householders should continue to recycle/dispose of as much waste as possible in their bins at home, and if circumstances allow, store excess waste in a shed or garage. No waste from commercial sources will be accepted. Businesses that require the uplift of waste can avail of the council’s commercial waste collection service. Please contact (028) 7034 7034 to arrange a collection. The opening of household recycling centres will be kept under review whilst social distancing restrictions are in place. Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding.
Residents are asked to keep other waste normally taken to the Centres at home until the current restrictions are lifted.
All black, blue and brown bin collections continue to take place as normal at this time, however, there may be some disruption in the near future.
Your bin should now be left out the night before and no later than 7.00am on day of collection. Over the coming weeks your bin may not be collected at the usual time. It is likely your bin can not be collected at a later time if not at the kerbside when the refuse collection crew is passing.
All black bin waste should be bagged and stored properly inside the bin.
Please clean the handles of your bins before and after they are left out for collection.
