Waste and recycling centres at Kerry County Council’s five civic amenity sites are this week experiencing high volumes.

The sites at Killarney, Kenmare, Milltown, Cahersiveen and Dingle are currently experiencing high volumes of visits by members of the public which usually occurs in the post-Christmas period.

Members of the public are asked to visit the centres if waste needs to be disposed of urgently and to limit travelling to centres as much as possible. The Council is also reminding the public of the 5km travel restriction currently in place and the advice to remain at home except for essential reasons.

Having regard to Level 5 restrictions and in the interests of public health and minimising the numbers of people circulating at each of the centres, Kerry County Council has put the following measures in place:

Traffic management and a queueing system is in place at all sites and this may lead to short delays for those visiting the centres.

Just one occupant should leave vehicles on site in the interest of reducing numbers of people circulating at the sites.

Members of the public are asked not to bring items to sites which do not need to be disposed of urgently.

Members of the public are asked to adhere strictly to social distancing and to wear a face covering while on site.

​​​​​​​Customers are asked to use credit/debit cards payments as far as possible.

Kerry County Council appreciates the patience and cooperation of all those using the five civic amenity sites in the county.
