Kirkcowan – What's Going On?

DG Support – Community Bulletin – Ed 16

Welcome to Edition 16 of Community.

From this Monday (1 June) we will reopen ten of our twelve household waste recycling centres. For traffic management reasons, we cannot safely open the sites at Thornhill and Whithorn, but will do as soon as we can.

At the moment, we can only accept bagged waste, and due to requirement to social distance, we cannot offer any recycling onsite.

We apologise for this and hope to be able to reintroduce recycling on our sites in due course.

For the first week of opening

From Monday – all sites will be open seven days, and thereafter will revert to different opening hours. There is more information at https:// waste.

In addition, our bulky and white goods uplift service resumes on Monday too – and you can make a booking at 030 33 33 3000.

Across the council we are looking to restart services as soon as we practically can but we must follow guidance and advice from the medical experts and the government.

Through the community bulletin and social media we will continue to keep you up-to-date with developments.

Please continue to follow that latest government advice on physical distancing – and please stay safe.
