Local representatives have called for the council to explore the possibilities of providing bottle banks at the new North Clondalkin library. A motion was proposed by People Before Profit Cllr Madeleine Johansson at the recent Area Committee meeting to look at more sites for recycling facilities in the area including at the library. Cllr Madeleine Johansson said: “There is a real need for bottle banks and recycling facilities in the North Clondalkin area. I will continue to look for possible sites for these facilities.”

Gino Kenny TD said: “As a local councillor I worked hard to get bottle banks for my local community. I hope that these facilities can be included on the site for the new library. The library will provide a great service for the community and it makes sense to combine these type of facilities.”
