Due to new restrictions put in place this weekend to combat the spread of coronavirus, recycling centres in towns across Galway County are closed as of today.
Galway County Council said today that the recycling centres at Tuam, Clifden, and Ballinasloe are now closed.
They had remained open this week despite the pandemic, with people attending urged to obey social distancing, but that has now changed.
“Due to the revised restrictions in relation to #COVID19_Ireland, recycling centres at Tuam, Clifden & Ballinasloe will be closed until further notice,” the council said in a statement on facebook.
The council said that for more information, people should contact Barna Recycling at 091771619.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced a two week lockdown on Friday evening, with only those businesses deemed essential by the government to remain open during this period.
People are also supposed to remain in their homes in this period, only leaving for essential reasons such as buying groceries or exercising.
