Recycling facility shuttered by council

Wicklow County Council has revoked a waste facility permit from C&D Recycling in Rathnew.

The facility, which was opened by Stan O’Reilly in 2004, was closed down by council officials on Friday.

Wicklow County Council refused to comment on the matter but it is understood the council have been in contact with the company since November.

Large piles of rubbish, rubble and other waste was visible through the gates of the facility when called to the site.

According to a sign erected by the council, processing waste at the facility is now prohibited, meaning that waste already brought to the site is likely to remain there for the foreseeable future.
