Mayor Casey: ‘Recycle your Christmas tree’

Posted by

Every year during the Christmas season, over 30% more waste is produced. Newry and Mourne Council would like to remind householders that they can recycle items such as electrical items, glass, batteries, Christmas cards and of course, your Christmas tree at all of their Household Recycling Centres (detailed below). Of the estimated 7.5 million Christmas trees that were bought this festive season only a small percentage will be recycled for composting. The rest will end up in landfill, but you can help. Mayor Charlie Casey said, “Real Christmas trees can be taken to any of our seven Household recycling Centres in Newry, Camlough, Newtownhamilton, Hilltown, Warrenpoint, Kilkeel or Mayobridge. From here they will be sent to NWP Recycling in Keady and turned into compost. We are appealing to residents to get recycling and start 2012 on a green footing.” Newry Household Recycling Centre: Chapel Road, Newry Hilltown Household Recycling Centre: Rostrevor Road, Hilltown, Warrenpoint Household Recycling Centre:Upper Dromore Road, Warrenpoint Kilkeel Household Recycling Centre: Ballymageogh Road, Kilkeel Camlough Household Recycling Centre: Quarter Road, Camlough Newtownhamilton Household Recycling Centre: Newry Road, Newtownhamilton Mayobridge Household Recycling Centre: Chapel Hill Road, Mayobridge For more information on how you can recycle in the New Year, please contact Ruth Colgan, Recycling Officer, Newry and Mourne District Council.
