Mrs Shirley Mathers from Camlough was February’s winner of the Recycler of the Month competition. The competition, which is sponsored by the Department of the Environment’s Rethink Waste campaign in partnership with Newry and Mourne District Council, awards £50 to householders who use their recycling bins correctly. Shirley has commented that using her blue bin correctly has drastically reduced the amount of waste she sends to landfill in her black bin. Shirley and her family also recycle their glass bottle and jars at their local Household Recycling Centre on the Quarter Road in Camlough. The Director of Technical Services and leisure, Mr Jim McCorry said, “I would like to congratulate Mrs Mathers and her family on their efforts to recycle. They have fully embraced the blue bin service, and are a great example to the community. Newry and Mourne District Council are for the most part excellent in terms of their recycling practices and I would like to encourage all residents to continue in their efforts to recycle more.” This month officers were delighted that residents in the area were using their blue bins to their full potential with very little contamination present. Householders are reminded that clean plastic trays and containers can now be put into the blue bin. However plastic bags/film cause huge processing problems, cannot be recycled and should be reused or placed into the black bin.
