Bins collections and recycling centres operating as normal as bulky waste collections suspended
16 March 2020
Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Bulky Waste Collection service has been temporarily suspended to allow for essential services to continue.
The suspension will last until Friday March 27th when the decision will be reviewed.
All bulky waste collections already booked and scheduled for this week will go ahead but the online booking system is closed until further notice.
Bin collection services will continue as scheduled including St Patrick’s Day and Recycling Centres are operating as normal.
To help avoid contamination, users should bag all black bin waste and seal all food waste inside compostable bags and properly store the bags inside the appropriate bin.
The decision follows Friday’s announcement to close all Council owned buildings to the public for an initial two week period.
We apologise for this inconvenience and urge the public to be patient during this challenging time as we work to prioritise essential Council services.
