A significant amount of household waste and other rubbish has been discarded at the recycling facility in Frenchpark, angering local community volunteers and residents. Bottle bank facilities have seen a significant increase in usage all across Ireland since the lockdown as almost all food and drink consumption is now taking place in the home instead of out and about, but local authorities have asked that people bring away any bottles or cans that can’t fit in the existing banks, and to notify them if any need emptying.

They have been adamant that people are not to leave cardboard or plastic containers at the site, not to leave bottles that beside overflowing banks, and certainly not to leave household waste – however this tweet from @FRoscommon would suggest that this guidance has not been followed in Frenchpark.

Roscommon County Council have also asked local residents to be on the lookout for illegal dumping, which has been on the rise since the lockdown, and to notify them of any instances that may arise.
