We would like to re­mind users due to some con­fu­sion re­cently that we ARE NOT per­mit­ted to take any fridges, freez­ers, cook­ers, wash­ing ma­chines or dri­ers. Apolo­gies for any in­con­ve­nience caused as the county Coun­cil does not per­mit us to do so.

We CAN ac­cept clean, dry card/pa­per, some met­als, some plas­tics (1-4) and light bulbs.

The Ti­na­hely.ie web­site out­lines what can and can­not be ac­cepted and in­cludes other ben­e­fi­cial in­for­ma­tion and can be ac­cessed here: ti­na­hely.ie/

Again we re­gret any in­con­ve­nience caused and thank you all for your con­tin­ued sup­port.
