West Mayo bottle banks relocating

PLANS to relocate bottle banks from a car park in Westport to the industrial estate have been approved by local councillors.

As a follow on, perhaps the bottle bank near the gaelscoil could also be relocated, Councillor Christy Hyland suggested at a municipal meeting.

Councillor Johnny O'Malley said they should leave it for now, to see how the new banks impact it. He felt they would take pressure off that facility.

Welcoming the bottle banks in the industrial estate, Councillor Peter Flynn said having such facilities near homes was a 'scourge', with people using them late at night or early morning.

He felt they should consolidate them all in the industrial park.
