What is the Civic Amenity Centre? The Civic Amenity Centre, custom-built site where householders can bring a wide range of materials for recycling or disposal where necessary. 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. Chargeable Materials: Wood: Garden, Hardwood Flooring, Doors; Bulky Items: Furniture, Carpets; General Waste: Domestic refuse; Soil, Stones: Bricks, Paving, Concrete, Soil; Metals: Bicycles, Scrap Metal, Radiators; Green Garden Waste: Grass, Hedge Clippings, Plants; Gas Cylinders: Place all cylinders upright; Fire Extinguishers: Must be discharged; Waste Oils: Cooking Oil, Motor Oil; Household Hazardous Waste Paint, Old Medicine, Strippers/Thinners, Detergents/Bleaches; Domestic Recyclables (Car €2.25, Car and Trailer/Van/Jeep €4.50). Charges: The Centre operates a "Pay by Weight" system. We regret that we cannot take large commercial vehicles, under condition 5.1.1 of our EPA Waste Licence 175 - 1. These large commercial vehicles can be accommodated at Silliot Hill Integrated Waste Management Facility, in Kilcullen, where the same weight charges as outlined above apply.
This Recycling facility requires all Man with a Van companies to have registered with them before arriving at the Recycle centre. When you are filling out the form to get quotes for recycling, choose the "recycle" option in the job type part of the form. By choosing the recycle option when filling out the form it means that you will only get quotes from Man with a Van companies that say they are licenced to do this type of move. Unlicensed van companies cannot by law move recycled waste. Although this may be the closest Recycling facility to you, the Man with a Van company may have permission to use another facility. When talking to the Van Company please ask where they have permission to unload recycled waste. Please be mindful that if a quote is very cheap they may be unlawfully disposing of the recyclables. It is your responsibility to ensure this does not happen. This facility operates a weigh bridge and will charge the van driver for the weight they dispose of.
