The bottle banks at the Fair Green in Ardee will be emptied three times over Christmas week as Louth County Council deal with greater than usual volumes of bottle recycling.
All bottle banks county wide will be emptied three times in the space of five days – on Thursday December 27th, Friday December 28th and Tuesday January 2nd.
This is to help deal with increased volume over the Christmas period.
There are currently seven bins in operation at the site in Ardee – which is made up of two brown bottle banks, two clear bottle banks, two can banks and one green bottle bank.
The local authority say normal service will be resumed after January 2nd and into the New Year.
The nearest alternative brink banks are in Louth Village, Tallanstown or Philipstown.
Locals will also be given the chance to dispose of their Christmas packaging waste responsibly this year – with a recycling drop off point being made available in the town centre over the festive period.
Independent councillor Jim Tenanty has teamed up with Paul Lanney of SuperValu to provide a recycling waste point where locals can bring their cardboard, plastic and paper recycling which as ever, is set to accumulate quickly over Christmas.
The recycling point will be in place outside SuperValu on Ardee’s Ashwalk on Tuesday December 26th and Wednesday December 27th and will be free to use.
