Bottle Banks

Recycling Bring Bank

Recycling bring banks are strategically located across the County allowing householders to dispose of clear, green and brown glass and also aluminium drink cans.  Please note it is not necessary to remove paper labels but remember to remove foil labels, corks, rings and caps.  Please rinse out your recyclable items before placing them in the bring bank.

Please do not abuse these facilities by leaving rubbish or waste at them.  Littering is an offence under the Litter Pollution Act and you could be liable to an On-the-Spot Fine of €150.   Please bring your bags/boxes home with you and reuse them again.

Leaving your recyclable items beside the bottle banks, rather than placing them in the containers provided is illegal and costs time and money to clean up.   Even when the banks are full, it is illegal to leave your items beside the bank – please go to another site or return again when the banks have been emptied.   If a bank is full, please call 091 395400 (Rehabglassco) for the banks to be emptied.

If you wish to report littering of a bring bank, please contact the Environment Section on 094 9047441 or email environment@mayococo.ie stating the location of the bring bank.
