Full service has resumed for the city council’s brown bin refuse collection.

This is expected to conclude by the end of this week.

To date, the local authority has refused to confirm or deny a claim from local Cllr Padraig Conneely that the company who had supplied bin collection trucks and street cleaners withdrew its machinery from the city council yard last Tuesday evening.

However city households are advised that full refuse collection service is now in operation.
