A spokesperson for Causeway Coast and Glens Council said a booking system will operate when Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) re-open on Monday, May 4.

HRCs will be open Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 3.30pm and accept excess waste that would normally go into your black bin only.

To visit a HRC it will be necessary to book a slot in advance for a particular facility.

Bookings can be made by calling the relevant number between 9.30am and 3.30pm daily Monday to Friday.
