The Northern Civic Amenity site will be opening this weekend but the red tape is amusing, I understand the need for social distancing etc, etc but this is the Ramsey Commissioners at its very best, H&S will have led the Commissioners press notice.
Just have a look at them bullet points, don't forget to book a slot and whats that all about maintaining access for the Emergency Services??!
Love that NO help will be given on site, well fuck all has changed there!

The Northern Civic Amenity Site at Balladoole will open this weekend.
The site will operate its normal advertised working hours. However there are other restrictions that will apply for the foreseeable future.
The site will open 8am Saturday 25th April 2020 to residents of the Northern Parishes ONLY.
Last admission is 15 minutes before closing:
Monday – Thursday and Saturday 8am - 4:30pm
Friday 8am – 4pm
Sunday 9am – 4:30pm
To avoid the rush to the site and long queues of vehicles on the main road, and to ensure that we maintain access for emergency services beyond our site we are going to be operating a booking system, where people will need to book a time to visit the site for the first couple of weeks initially, however this could be extended depending on the pandemic.
A slot should be booked by clicking here. In extreme circumstances it can be arranged over the phone during working hours by ringing 01624 810100.
ONLY visit the site if you really need too; be considerate of other users around the North of the Island who will need to use the site as site access is going to be very restricted
ONLY 3 cars will be allowed on site at a time
You will be limited to no longer than 10 minutes on site, so do not overfill your vehicles as you will be asked to leave site after your time
NO trailers will be allowed on site
You must observe the 2m social distancing at all times
We recommend one person per car per household
Waste must be broken down in to manageable bags for one person to move, as help will NOT be given on site
Waste must be broken down, compacted and separated prior to entering site. Due to the limited material that we are accepting the gantries have been re-organised for
Green waste – Cuttings only, no hedges or trees
We will not be taking recycling items at this time, but this will be reviewed on a regular basis
DO NOT turn up on the off chance that you can get access to the site as you will not be allowed on site
Make sure that you give yourself enough time to get to the site for your slot
Please remember that the staff are only following instructions laid out for them during the pandemic to ensure everyone’s safety, so be patient and polite.
