Cllr Francis Timmons – Independent Voice

Bottle Banks


Wednesday, June 22, 2016


QUESTION: Councillor F. Timmons

“To ask the Chief Executive for a report on what progress has been made in terms of bottle banks following Motions for bottle banks in North Clondalkin and Bawnogue?”


The following list of sites in the Clondalkin area have been identified as locations which might be suitable for the provision of bring banks and commitments have been given previously to pursue each of these.  It should be noted that Bawnogue is not included in this list as a bring site is already in place in Bawnogue at the Community and Enterprise Centre.  Potential sites have been identified at Neilstown S/C and Rowlagh C/C and these will be pursued with the management at both centres. The sites at Woodford S/C and Lidl are privately owned and requests have been issued in the past in relation to both of these for permission to trial each location for the provision of a bring bank there, these sites will now be pursued further with the owners.  Efforts are continuing to identify a suitable site in Newcastle Village.  It is proposed that the Clondalkin area committee will be updated further regarding progress on this matter before the end of the year.
