COVID 19 Recycling

Cavan County Council is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation. At this time, all 30 Recycling Bring Centres and three Civic Amenity Centres will continue to operate, but with amended opening hours.

In the interests of staff and public safety and in order to properly implement HSE and Government Guidelines regarding large gatherings, social distancing and unnecessary contact, visitors are asked to strictly adhere to the following protocols:

Civic Amenity Sites (Corranure, Bailieborough, and Ballyconnell)

  • Pre-segregate waste at home
  • Keep your distance (at least 2 metres)
  • Where possible, please pay with card to avoid handling cash.
  • The number of visitors on site may be restricted at any one time to avoid the risk of infection.
  • If instructed to remain in your vehicle, please comply and the staff will get you through the site as quickly as possible.
  • We appreciate your support and co-operation as we all navigate our way through this difficult time.

Recycling Bring Centres

When using our Recycling Bring Centres to recycle your plastic bottles, glass jars and bottles, aluminium cans and textiles please adhere to the following:

  • Always use the correct receptacle.
  • Do not mix recyclables as this can lead to contamination which may prevent the whole contents of that receptacle from being recycled.
  • Do not place residual waste or litter beside or inside the recycling receptacles.
  • Do not leave any boxes or bags at the site.  If the receptacles are full, please use an alternative site or come back another day.
  • On the spot fines of €150 may be incurred if you cause littering at any Recycling Bring Centre.
