Tuesday: Closed

Speaking about the reopening of the recycling centre in Kinawley, the Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Chris Smyth said:

“I am delighted that the Council has been able to reopen the recycling centre in Kinawley as part of the ongoing reopening programme.

I would like to thank the members of the public for their co-operation in relation to the phased reopening of recycling centres thus far. I would ask that residents only use the recycling centres if they have waste that cannot be accommodated by the usual kerbside collections. When visiting sites people should continue to exercise patience and caution and follow social guidelines to ensure the safety of staff and other sites users at all times.”

Recycling centres at Gortrush, Drummee, Carrickmore, Kesh, Fintona, Lisnaskea, Belleek and Newtownbutler have already reopened for all waste as part of the Council’s programme of phased reopenings.

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 cannot 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.

The reopening of the remaining Recycling Centres in Dromore, Garrison, Irvinestown, Lisbellaw, Rosslea and Tempo  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.
