Traf­fic warn­ing over farm tyre day

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A TRAF­FIC warn­ing has been is­sued for the farm tyre bring-cen­tre day in New Ross Mart, af­ter 2km tail­backs were re­ported at the first col­lec­tion day in Ca­van.

New Ross Mart, lo­cated in Ros­ber­con, is host­ing the col­lec­tion to­day, (Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 9) from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m.

The cost of the col­lec­tion is €15 per tonne for the first three tonnes, and €160 for any­thing over that amount.

Ire­land South MEP Deirdre Clune said that it is im­por­tant that lessons are learned from Ca­van.

MEP Clune said: ‘Farm­ers faced sig­nif­i­cant de­lays in bring­ing old tyres to the re­cy­cle point in Ca­van and lessons must be learned from this. Mea­sures must be put in place to en­sure de­lays like those ex­pe­ri­enced in Ca­van do not oc­cur again. Over 450 farm­ers turned up at Ca­van and this shows what a valu­able ser­vice this is but it must be done right.’

She called on Min­is­ter Naugh­ten to en­sure that long queues don’t hap­pen at up­com­ing Wex­ford col­lec­tion point. ‘This is a very im­por­tant and valu­able ini­tia­tive from by the De­part­ment. I would also en­cour­age the De­part­ment to look at more ways in which it can fa­cil­i­tate farm­ers to re­cy­cle tyres.’
