Speaking about the latest phase of recycling centres to reopen, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Chris Smyth said:

“The reopening of the recycling centres at Rosslea, Dromore and Tempo marks the next phase of the Council’s return to delivering core services.  I would like to thank the staff who have worked incredibly hard to ensure that most of the recycling centres across the district are now fully operational. When considering the programme for reopening of recycling centres on a phased basis, the Council has been mindful of health and safety considerations in line with prevailing government guidance. I would like to thank the residents of the district who have cooperated fully with the restrictions implemented to sensure that the recycling centres could be reopened safely and I would again ask that visitors to the recycling centres continue to follow social distancing guidelines and to observe good hygiene practice to ensure the safety of staff and other sites users at all times.”

The sites at Gortrush, Drummee, Carrickmore, Kesh, Fintona, Lisnaskea, Belleek, Newtownbutler, Kinawley and Irvinestown have already reopened for all waste as part of the Council’s programme of phased reopening of recycling centres across the district and with Rosslea, Dromore and Tempo reopening this week, only Garrison and Lisbellaw remain closed. However, the status of both is being kept under constant review and  consideration will be given to reopening the remaining sites as soon as the Council is able to fulfil all necessary Health and Safety requirements at the sites.

All visitors to the sites will be required to follow traffic management controls put in place to manage the safe disposal of waste. Visitors to the sites should bring their own gloves and use hand sanitizer provided. Bins will available at the exit to dispose of gloves safely.

Regrettably, site staff are unable to assist with off-loading material at this time. Site users must dispose of their own waste into the containers provided however users may bring assistance with them but must adhere to current government guidance and it is important that the waste is pre-sorted before coming to the centre.
