SCRAP Metal: Moyvane Development Association will hold a scrap metal collection from Friday 10th December to Friday 17th December. Newtownsandes Coop and North Cork Coop have very kindly offered a dedicated section of their yard in Moyvane as a collection area for this scrap collection. Drop off times for scrap metal are 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12 pm on Saturday.

We are currently half way through our community led planning initiative, which will provide a well-coordinated development plan for Moyvane and Knockanure. Financial resources will be needed to see this through and it is hoped this scrap metal collection will be a good starting point on our journey together, while also giving people the opportunity for a positive clear out.

We are asking people to have a look around in their houses, back gardens & yards to pull out and bring any unwanted scrap metal to the drop off point in Newtownsandes Co-op from 10th to 17th December at stated times. Anything metal is welcome but fridges freezers, timber, plastic or tyres cannot be accepted. Batteries are also accepted but must be stored in dedicated battery storage bins at the collection point. Contact Martin at 087 6761353 or Kieran at 087 4115116 if you have any queries.
