Residents are being advised to have any large unwanted items they wish to dump at the ready for a council 'bulky lift'. Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has encouraged residents to avail of Council’s Bulky Lift service scheduled for Foyle Springs. Cllr. McGinley said: “Council has agreed to carry out an extensive bulky lift programme this coming week in the Foyle Springs area. "On Tuesday, September 11, the Foyle Springs Road estate will be covered along with Altnafoyle and Norburgh Park whilst the area from Kinnego Park through to Springvale Park will be serviced on Wednesday, September 12. Springham Park will also be included on this date. "The Council’s bulky lift programme provides an opportunity for residents to dispose of unwanted household furniture and other items at no cost and I would encourage residents to avail of this service.” Meanwhile, SDLP Councillor Angela Dobbins has welcomed the return of the annual Culmore Bulky Lift which is to take place on September 17 and 18. She said: “Due to financial constraints, there were concerns that my request for an annual Bulky Lift would not occur this year. "However, I am extremely pleased that due to the great response that it received last year, Derry City and Strabane District Council have scheduled another Bulky Lift for the Culmore area this year. “It has been organised for the 17th and 18th September. The lorry will operate between 8am and 2pm and will service from Heathfield up to and including Thornhill Park on the 17th and from Culmore Square to Muff on the 18th. “Further details and what can be lifted are on the Council website, in local shops or by contacting me on 07709147751.”
