*Please note: Due to the size of the smaller centres, (Maghera, Tullyvar, Coalisland, Fivemiletown, Ballymacombs, Castledawson, Draperstown and Moneymore), the potential for congestion and to ensure social distancing guidance is adhered to, trailer access will be restricted at these sites. As before, commercial waste will not be accepted at these sites but residents can continue to dispose of commercial waste at Cookstown, Drumcoo and Magherafelt Recycling Centres where trailers will also be accepted.*

Members of the public are asked to visit the recycling centres only:

  • if they are unable to use their existing bins to dispose of their waste and material for recycling and cannot store excess waste safely at home
  • if they are able to lift their waste directly into the site’s skips and containers.

Traffic management systems will be in place to ensure a limited and safe number of vehicles are in the sites at any one time. Social distancing measures will also be in place.
