The Civic Amenity Centre is operated and managed by Oxigen Environmental. Where is the Civic Amenity Centre? Travelling into Athy, on the N9, from Kilcullen/Naas direction: Turn right at King Oil, down the small avenue next to the forecourt of the service station. KCC Athy Roads Depot at bottom of avenue, Athy Civic Amenity Centre to the right. How is the centre used? There is a separate container or skip for each type of material at the Civic Amenity Centre. All materials must be segregated. Remember that wet or dirty material can contaminate other dry recyclables. When this happens nothing can be recycled, and the whole load has to be sent to landfill for disposal. Points to remember: Electrical goods are free of charge; Recyclables should be clean and dry; no food waste, dirt, or waste products; All food and detergent containers should be washed out thoroughly; food waste attracts pests, and detergents may be harmful to other people; Boxes, cartons and tetra-pak must be flattened before depositing in their designated skips; All plastic and polystyrene must be separated from cardboard; Make sure you put the correct material in the correct container.
