Sullatober Household Recycling Centre: booking 'essential' as upgrade work commences
Carrick residents are being reminded that booking is ‘essential’ as work begins to upgrade Sullatober Household Recycling Centre (HRC).
Mid and East Antrim Alliance Councillor, Alderman Noel Williams, is the newly appointed chair of the council’s Direct Services Committee, which is responsible for the service. He said: “The grant aided construction of the long-overdue upgrade of the Recycling Centre has begun at Sullatober, and residents who use the facility will really need to be disciplined and patient when booking and using the centre.
“A booking system has been in place for several weeks, though staff have been as flexible as they can when a resident has turned up at the site without a booking. If it was a quiet time the chances are that they would have been permitted to have access.
“That flexibility is now at an end as there are construction engineers working in tandem with the HRC and health will be of paramount importance.
“Booking is essential if you want to dispose of material at the HRC, which will be decamping to the opposite side of the road while the new facility emerges over time.
“I would like to take the opportunity to commend the centre staff on the splendid way they have managed the process, with common sense and flexibility in abundance over the past several weeks, and to thank them for the excellence of their routine work in what is a really outdated facility.
“There is little doubt that the new HRC will be stare-of-the-art and, as Chair of the Direct Services Committee on MEA Council, I will be taking a particular interest in its development over the next several months.”
