Calls for more recycling options in West of City

There are calls for more recycling options in the West of Galway City.

Councillor Alan Curran has pointed out there’s only one free recycling centre in the city for larger, awkward household items, and it’s on the Tuam Road.

He also notes that while the centre at Liosbán Industrial estate disposes of most waste, it cannot dispose of hazardous items such as old paint cans and household chemicals.

Social Democrats City East councillor Curran says people are generally good at recycling, but the facilities need to be more accessible:
