Tree-Mendous Recycling in Antrim and Newtownabbey!

23 December 2015

Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is giving residents some festive recycling tips to make sure their Christmas clear-up doesn’t cost the earth!

If you have a real tree, you can recycle it by chopping it up and putting it into your brown bin, or by taking the full tree to one of our five recycling centres (details below). You can also help reduce waste by recycling your glass bottles and jars (with lids and caps left on), or use rechargeable batteries rather than disposable ones.

Leona Donaghy, Environmental Awareness Officer for Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council commented, ‘Christmas is a time of year when household waste is relatively high. I would like to encourage residents to recycle as much as possible over the festive period. There are five fantastic recycling facilities across the Borough that our residents can avail of to help reduce waste.’

For details on the Council’s recycling facilities please contact 028 9034 0056/57 for Newtownabbey area or 028 9446 3113 for Antrim area.
