Clondalkin Cllr. Madeleine Johansson has called on local shops in North Clondalkin to take responsibility for recycling facilities. The statement comes following a recent motion to South Dublin County Council (SDCC) which revealed that a number of shopping centres in North Clondalkin have refused to allow bottle banks on their grounds. Currently SDCC are exploring other options for the facilities.

 

Cllr Madeleine Johansson said: “It’s a real shame that the owners or management companies of local shopping centres are refusing to place recycling facilities on their grounds. There is a massive need for facilities to allow people to recycle bottles and cans in North Clondalkin. The nearest facilities are located at the Mill Centre in Clondalkin Village. Shops that sell these products should take some responsibility for providing accessible disposal of the waste. “Recycling is an extremely important part of looking after our environment and combating pollution. I’d like to ask the management and owners of these centres to re-consider the request for recycling facilities and enter discussions with SDCC.”
