We operate six Recycling Recycling Centres in County Donegal. A wide range of items are collected for recycling and we also accept garden and household waste. All our sites in Donegal are currently open as normal - opening hours can be viewed below.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not currently accept soft plastics, such as crisp bags, sweet wrappers and bread wrappers at our Recycling Centres in Donegal for recycling. We are reviewing options for sustainable markets for these materials.
