Disruption to Refuse Service Newtownabbey

06 October 2015

We are continuing to experience disruption to the refuse service in the Newtownabbey area.   
 
The current disruption to service relates mainly to damaged bins, which need replaced.   Following a report being made to the Council's Operations Committee last night, it was agreed that, for a period of one month borough wide, the Council would waive the normal cost to residents to replace a damaged black bin.  This arrangement will be reviewed at the end of the one month period and a further report will be made to Committee.
 
We sincerely apologise to customers in the Newtownabbey area for the service disruption.   We would advise customers with a bin that has been missed to please leave their bin out so that it can be collected within 24 hrs.  We are also advising customers with a damaged black bin to contact:
 
028 9034 0056/57 (Newtownabbey Area)
028 9446 3113 (Antrim Area).
 
The Council’s website and Twitter will be updated on a regular basis to keep customers informed.
