  • No commercial vehicles or trailers will be allowed access
  • Only one person per vehicle can enter the site
  • All customers must place the waste into the receptacles themselves.  Civic Amenity  operatives will not be able to assist
  • Payment for black bag waste will be €4.00 per bag with maximum of 3 bags permitted. Weighing will not be possible as it increases the handling required
  • Customers must bring the exact payment i.e. €4, €8 or €12 depending on the number of bags
  • Physical distancing of a minimum 2m must be observed at all times
  • Sites will not be accepting garden waste, timber, metal waste, bulky items, waste electronic equipment (WEE), oils or paints

Due to the reduced range of recyclables being accepted, the normal €3 entry fee shall be waived for the period of the current health protection measures being in place.
