Recycling Centres across City and District change to Winter Opening Hours

28 September 2023

Selected Recycling Centres across the Derry City and Strabane District Council area will change to Winter opening hours from next week.

Recycling Centres in Eglinton, Claudy, Plumbridge and Spamount will operate under new opening times for the Winter season from Monday 2nd October.

The new opening times will operate from October 2023 until March 2024 and feature a few changes to the already existing Summer opening times.

The selected recycling times will open from 10am until 5pm on Mondays and from 9:30am until 5pm from Tuesday to Friday.  All four Recycling Centres will be closed every Saturday and Sunday during this time period.

Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Cllr Patricia Logue, reminded the public to be mindful of the new opening times and plan ahead.

“I would advise everyone to become familiar with the Recycling section of our website and get to know the new Winter opening times for certain Recycling Centres before making any trips. While there are only a few minor changes, it’s always helpful to know if there is another Recycling Centre in your area that might be handier to use.

“There is also a wealth of information on there with regards to reducing waste and how to use your bins effectively as well as the collection calendar and how to book a Bulky Waste collection.”

All other Recycling Centres including Pennyburn, Glendermott Road, Strathfoyle, Park, Donnemana, Newtownstewart and Strahans Road’s opening hours will remain the same.
