New locked boat waste facilities are being considered for Carrick-on-Shannon

Leitrim County Council will give consideration to the provision of a more enclosed and locked waste collection point for boat users during the detailed design of the Carrick-on-Shannon Destination Towns project.
Cllr Finola Armstrong McGuire asked that, with planned development of the waterside at the public toilets and jetty in the county town, a locked collection point be provided for boat users.
She said this could be accessed by a fob or card adding this would prevent the current situation where the current waste collection point is "overfilled".
"At the moment it is a blot on the walkway," she told the Carrick-on-Shannon Municipal District meeting.
