Newry and Mourne District Council officers were delighted to welcome 3 groups of primary school children to their newly opened Household Recycling Centre in Crossmaglen. The 3 groups from Clonalig, Anamar and St Patrick’s Primary School got a chance to see the working of the centre first hand, learn about what happens to the material after it is recycled and the use of renewable energies to heat the facility. Council officials hoped that the visit would encourage the children to come back with their parents and use the facility time and time again. Newry Lord Mayor McArdle said, “These children will hopefully help their parents with recycling, not only by helping them sort their waste, but also by making them more aware of this fantastic facility in their local area.” Due to Northern Ireland Waste Legislation and Site Licensing Conditions, cross border waste is not permitted at any of the Council’s Household Recycling Centres. Visitors to the site will be asked to provide 1 form of photographic identification and 1 utility bill as proof of address before entering the site. Callers to the site without this information will not be permitted to enter the site. Visitors will also be asked to pre-sort their waste to ensure as much waste as possible is recycled.
