Where to bring excess recycling

    I forgot to take the recycling bin out twice in a row now so I need an alternative way to get rid of it. Where can I bring it? I don't have a car so I can't really bring it to the depot or wherever it is the bin trucks take it.

    This question is unanswerable unless you say where in the country you are.

    Check your local council website, they will have some recycling facilities available.

    I'm in north county Dublin but I was asking in general what kinda places you can bring recycling to (i.e. the way some supermarkets have bottle banks in the car parks etc.).

    The availability of facilities varies wildly across the country. You have no guarantee of getting more than glass/aluminium banks locally and generally most parts of the country don't have anything else.

    Realistically you need to go to a larger recycling centre such as Coolmine which has plastic/paper/metal areas but without a car you can't do that easily.

    Yeah it takes me 2 hours to get to Coolmine with public transport. Ah well, I'll just pack it all into bin bags for now then try stack a few bags on top of the green bin.

    If you have one of those bottle banks nearby have a look and see what they take. Some of the CoCo ones near me take plastic bottles as well as all glass so you can reduce the recycling pile by a fair bit just getting rid of them alone.
