A planning application is to be lodged with North Tipperary County Council in the coming days for a state-of-the-art recycling centre at Mill Road, Thurles which will contain a much needed Civic Amenity facility for the Mid Tipperary region.
Boomerang Recycling Limited will be applying to the planning authority for full permission for the facility in Thurles which will include a recycling and material recovery area, site offices, weigh bridge, revised entrance, sewerage pump station, civic amenity location and ancilliary works at Monakeeba, Mill Road (beside Ryan's Equestrian Centre).
A largely similar application for the same location had been withdrawn some time ago to allow for further changes to be made to facilitiate roads issues, but the application is now completed and is ready for consideration by the planning office. The decision should be made within three months of the application being lodged if things run smoothly.
The plan is for the in-take of dry recycleables including metal, timber, cardboard, plastics, rubble, glass, paper etc.
There will be no food waste accepted at the site but there will be a facility to drop off non recycleables such as furniture, beds, matrasses, couches etc. for a nominal fee.
All WEEE items will also be accepted free of charge in conjunction with departmental legislation.
