Councillor Angela Mulholland has offered a message of reassurance during these unprecedented times, in relation to the Councils waste services.
Speaking Cllr Mulholland said:
“Causeway Coast and Glens Council continues to offer blue, brown and black bin collections as normal. We ask householders to please leave bins out the night before or by 7am at the latest on the day. The reason for this is that to facilitate social distancing and to keep our refuse collection staff safe we have additional lorries helping with bin routes.
“If you are running low on food waste caddy liners please tie a liner to the handle of your brown bin and our crews will leave you a roll. We are only delivering one roll[50 liners] to ensure stocks last over the coming months and again we ask for understanding on this.
“Finally, we would ask for patience in regard to waste services. These are challenging times for everyone including Council staff who also worry about their own and their families safety. We continue to provide a weekly collection service and there are no planned changes to this at present. We would ask that people make their friends, family and neighbours aware of all of this particularly those who don’t have access to social media.”
