A spokesperson said “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 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.
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.”
