Clogher Recycling Centre To Be Replaced By Recycling Banks
The recycling centre in Clogher is to be replaced by a set of recycling banks, following a decision by Mid Ulster District Council this evening (26 September 2019).
The recycling banks are to be installed following a review of the existing site which highlighted that it was no longer fit for purpose, given its limited size, its age, a range of health, safety and compliance concerns and the level of investment which would be required to meet standards.
In addition, the annual throughput of 251 tonnes and a recycling segregation rate of 38% means the centre has the lowest performance of all 12 of the sites operated by the Council.
Chair of the Council’s Environment Committee, Councillor Wilbert Buchanan, said:
“Removing the risk associated with the existing site, while continuing to ensure that there is recycling provision via the banks for glass and textiles, is a balanced decision which means local people have the banks in the centre of the village, with access to larger facilities in both Fivemiletown and Tullyvar which are both short distances away”.
The existing recycling centre will become non-operational immediately and recycling banks will be installed on Monday 30th September.
