Bottle Banks

Spread your recycling over the festive period to relieve pressure on recycling facilities. If bottle banks are full avoid a fine and go to another site or take them home for another day. Please do not leave your bags or boxes of cans or bottles on the ground. The bring bank network in Longford is due to be serviced between December 23rd and December 31st so use the banks if possible after these dates to ensure there is capacity for your bottles and cans.
