Following representations I and my Fine Gael colleagues on Dublin City Council have made in recent days, I can confirm that the North Strand and Ringsend Civic Amenity sites will re-open on Monday next, April 20th.
The North Strand facility on Shamrock Terrace will re-open at 10am on Monday morning.
Traffic management measures will be in place on Shamrock Terrace to ensure social distancing requirement are met.
Council officials are undertaking a risk assessment of the Bring Centres to ascertain the necessary measures required to ensure social distancing before reopening to the public. Where possible the Bring Centres will reopen on a phased basis with effect from Monday 27th April. Confirmation of this will not be made known until next week.
I welcome these announcements by Dublin City Council and fully agree with the risk assessment of Bring Centres like Grangegorman, so that minimum social distancing requirements can be fully adhered to.
However, it is envisaged that in order to comply with Health and Safety Regulations users of Dublin City Council Bring Centres must exercise due care.
- There is a 5MPH/8KMH site speed limit at all sites as listed.
- Children must be under the care of an adult at all times.
- To save you time and effort – please have your recyclables separated prior to arriving at the facility.
- Please be patient when containers are being serviced.
