Recycler of the Month

October winner of Recycler of the Month competition

17th December 2019

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s “Recycler of the Month” winners for October are Gary McSorley and Fatima Doherty from Drumquin.

Throughout the month of October, more than 550 blue recycling bins were inspected around the villages of Seskinore, Drumquin and Fintona and in the surrounding areas. Households that had the correct items for recycling in their blue bin were entered into draw for a chance to win £50.

The family’s commitment to recycling was evident as their blue bin contained loose, dry recyclables such as paper, cardboard, aluminium and steel cans, plastic bottles and containers, aerosols and glass bottles and jars and contained nothing which would contaminate the load.

Ms. Doherty explained that all the family take recycling very seriously adding that recycling was recently promoted as an Eco-schools topic at St. Joseph’s Primary School in Drumquin where their daughter is a pupil.

 The Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Siobhán  Currie, said: 

“I am delighted that Gary and Fatima and their family have been rewarded for their commitment to reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill by ensuring their blue bin waste is presented clean, dry and loose and free from contamination.

The Council is very grateful to the residents for their efforts to date and I would encourage you to continue to recycle as much as possible to meet its recycling targets and consequently enabling it to reinvest in the Council services to protect and improve the environment.”
