Funds for Carndonagh recycling centre 06.11.07

INISHOWEN'S only recycling amenity centre in Carndonagh is to get some funding towards its operational costs.
More than €76,000 has been allocated to Donegal County Council to offset the costs of the county's two civic amenity sites and its bring banks.
A section of Carndonagh Civic Amenity Site. The funding will help the local authority with costs for the period July to December last year. Local Fianna Fáil T.D., Niall Blaney explained that the money is from a national allocation of €4 million raised through the plastic bag levy.
“The funding provided for Donegal
County Council this time around is being paid on the basis of the information provided by the council on the costs and the level of recycling and recovery achieved in the six months in question," said Deputy Blaney.
“It is encouraging to see how this levy is resulting in real improvements in Donegal through funding allocations such as this.” There are fully operational civic amenity sites at Carndonagh and Stranorlar. A site in Laghey should be operational in 2008 while work has begun on sites in Milford and Dungloe. A site has recently been agreed for a civic amenity plant in Letterkenny.
“Donegal people have shown their willingness to act collectively in tackling our waste problems," added Deputy Blaney.
