Bulky goods waste collection extended for a week

Galway City and Count Councils have extended their resumed bulky goods waste collection service up to September 12.

Bulky Goods collections were suspended when Galway’s Council’s closed their recycling centres in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The service resumed on August 10 as the country reopened, with collections taking place at the Civic Amenity sites in Tuam, Ballinasloe, Clifden, and at the Carrowbrowne Recycling Centre on the Headford Road.

That service has been extended past its intended expiration time, and will now run

Items that will be accepted in this collection include upholstered furniture such as couches, armchairs etc; wardrobes; bedside lockers; bedframes; as well as tables and dining chairs.

Goods that will not be accepted include construction and demolition waste, electrical items, hazardous waste, bags of household waste, ceramic items, or textiles.

This service is for household waste only, and the entrance fee is €5 per car/van with trailer.

This service must be booked in advance via the Barna Recycling Waste before coming to any of these sites at: https://barnarecycling.com/booking.

For more information please contact your relevant council’s environment section.

For the county enquiries contact: 091 509510 or environment@galwaycoco.ie and for the city contact: 091 536400 or environment@galwaycity.ie.
