Opening times request

A RESIDENT has asked Ballymoney Council to consider changing the opening times at the Household Recycling Centre at Crosstagherty on the Burnquarter Road outside Ballymoney.

Council minutes stated: ‘A letter has been received from a Borough resident asking that Council review the opening hours at the above facility. The correspondent points out that “those of us who live in the country and who do not have a brown bin collection” are affected and “that the present opening hours at the site do not accommodate the average working person”.

‘The Director of Borough Services reminded members of the opening times of the site and the alternative options during its periods of closure. He advised that whilst there is no current budget provision to make changes to the opening hours at Crosstagherty, this will be tabled for consideration at the September meeting of Committee.

‘It was agreed to recommend that correspondence be sent to the resident providing information on alternative sites, advising of Council’s current budget restraint and stating that the matter will be further considered at the next Committee meeting,” the minutes reported.
