Mrs Margaret Quinn, Clougheramer Road, Newry was May’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.

Mrs Quinn’s bin was out for collection at 7.30am and was completely full. The bin was filled with all the correct materials for recycling including tetra pak and glass bottles and jars. When awarded the £50 prize, Margaret said, “I am delighted to win the recycler of the month competition. I use to take my glass bottles and jars to the local bring site but now that these can be recycled in the blue bin it is so much easier to recycle.”

The Director of Technical Services and leisure, Mr Jim McCorry said, “I would like to congratulate Mrs Quinn 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.”
