City and County councils resume bulky goods waste collection

Galway City and County councils are resuming their bulky goods waste collection service this month, with an extended collection period in recycling centres.

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

They are now resuming with a collection to run from August 10-22 at the Civic Amenity sites in Tuam, Ballinasloe, Clifden, and at the Carrowbrowne Recycling Centre on the Headford Road.

This collection service is open to households in Galway City and County.

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.

The gate for this bulky goods collection service is €5 per car/van and 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

This service is for household waste only, and any commercial operators will be turned away.

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