Following the news of Northern Ireland Executive’s ‘tentative first steps’ issued yesterday, Councillor William McCandless has said that there appears to be confusion concerning the disposal of waste.
Independent Councillor William McCandless said “All of Councils eleven recycling centres have been open since the 4th May. This was initially for anyone who had excess black bin waste.
At the council meeting earlier this week it was agreed to augment this service with the addition of garden waste and cardboard.
The booking system remains in operation to control the traffic flow and council will continue to review the amount of waste received based on capacity at the sites.
Waste items such as batteries, electrical goods and oil are not able to be accepted at this time as the contractors who handle these products have not recommenced their service to council as yet. This is under review and hopefully this aspect of the service will be resumed soon.”
To visit a HRC it is necessary to book a slot in advance for a particular facility.
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.
