During the lockdown, householders who are running low on kitchen caddy liners should tie a liner to the handle of their brown bin.  One roll of caddy liners will be left with the bin. Alternatively, householders can line their caddy with kitchen roll or scrape food directly into their brown bin.

From Monday 25th May 2020 Household Recycling Centres will be able to accept all types of material.

A booking system will remain in place and you must book a slot in advance. 

Bookings can be made by calling the relevant number between 9.30am and 3.30pm daily Monday to Friday.  

Should you miss your allocated slot it will be necessary to re-book an alternative time. It is not possible to book a same day visit.

All Household Recycling Centres are open Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 3.30pm. 

Householders are asked to sort their waste before leaving home – separate all recyclables from non-recyclable (landfill) waste.

Householders will be required to offload their own waste to maintain social distancing, including bulky items.

Strict measures will be in place to ensure that social distancing rules are complied with.  

Staff will control access to facilities and limit the number of vehicles on site at any one time.  

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 should continue to recycle/dispose of as much waste as possible in their bins at home.

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.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding.
