Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Mark Cooper said, “The Council is delighted to continue its working relationship with Bryson Recycling which was first established in 2005 with the legacy Newtownabbey Borough Council. This new contract will enable significant benefits to the Borough through local jobs and delivering on social value commitments.”
Commenting on the contract win, Katy Fulton, Acting Director of Bryson Recycling said “We are delighted to have won this contract and look forward to expanding our service in the local area. We have been working in partnership with the Council since 2005, when we launched our kerbside collection system and we are pleased to have the opportunity to continue our working relationship with them. As a local employer in the Council area this new contract will secure 21 jobs and create 10 new posts”.
We would like to advise all householders in the Newtownabbey area that collection times may vary at the start of this new contract as a result of changes to collection rounds. However please continue to present your bins and Wheelie Boxes as normal by 7am.
