Coun­cil to con­tinue bat­tle against waste

Bray People - - Council Report -

AS BRAY Re­cy­cling Cen­tre won a Repak Award last week, Bray Town Coun­cil are de­ter­mined to con­tinue their bat­tle on waste.

The Big Belly So­lar Com­pactor bins may yet re­place the cur­rent street bins around the town.

The new phe­nom­e­non in waste bins are 100 per cent so­lar pow­ered and can hold up to eight times the amount of a nor­mal street bin.

The idea was pro­posed by the Green Party mem­bers at last week’s Town Coun­cil meet­ing.

‘Sligo and Roscom­mon County Coun­cils have al­ready had th­ese bins on trial and they have been a great suc­cess in the U.S. I think that they would be a fan­tas­tic ad­di­tion to the town of Bray,’ said Coun­cil­lor Caro­line Bur­rell.

Coun­cil­lor Vance was in com­plete agree­ment, in­form­ing Cllr Bur­rell that the re­ju­ve­na­tion com­mit­tee had al­ready looked into us­ing them.

Coun­cil­lor Bríd Collins also gave the bins the thumbs up; ‘the price is so rea­son­able for such a great e nv i r o n m e n t a l l y friendly bin’.

It was agreed by all mem­bers that tak­ing the Big Belly So­lar Con­trac­tor Bins on for a trial would be looked into fur­ther.
