Cllr. Gurn calls for designated days for paint disposal in Leitrim

A Leitrim councillor is calling for a day to be designated on which people can dispose of paint and paint products that they may have accumulated during the Covid pandemic.

It’s a situation that has arisen throughout the north west as many people took the opportunity during the Covid restrictions to carrying out painting and other refurbishment jobs in their homes.

Leitrim County Council has told Independent Councillor Felim Gurn it is investigating having a day in Manorhamilton and Carrick on Shannon in March or April for the collection of hazardous waste from domestic users.

Cllr Gurn says it’s important such a collection day take place for people who want to do the right thing for the environment and to prevent illegal dumping.
