Council services resume after weather warning
17 October 2017
Derry City and Strabane District Council has advised that it has resumed normal services today following yesterday’s amber storm weather warning which resulted in a number of disruptions to regular service.
All Council facilities including leisure centres, recycling facilities, museums, parks and play areas have been reopened following early morning assessments for any potential damage. Street cleansing and refuse collection services have also resumed after being halted yesterday afternoon, and refuse crews are working across the city and district to reach all areas which did not have their bins collected yesterday. We are advised anyone who has not had their bin collected to leave it at the kerbside. Anyone with any queries on this is asked to contact the Council directly on 028 71253253.
A spokesperson for the Council said that its officials will continue to monitor the situation and remain in regular contact with the other multi-agencies as part of the recovery stage.
Thanking the public for their co-operation, the spokesperson said the health and safety of the public is a priority for the Council and it remained committed to its joint collaborative approach with the multi-agencies when dealing with major issues and emergencies of this nature.
