North strand recycling centre – Reviews 

Here are some of the reviews of people who used this recycling centre in North Strand (Dublin 1).

Claire Moore: At North strand recycling centre is a one-way system in place for cars. Skips are well labelled. The staff are absolutely fantastic. They are friendly & super helpful & even helped me unload my car saving me so much time.

Jimmy Evans: It’s a great place to bring stuff. Staff at the North strand recycling centre is fine. They were reasonably pleasant but more bored looking than anything else. Who could blame them? It was a seriously hot day too. No offers of help but I didn’t need any.

Paul Leonard: Simple system down there. I asked which bin different things went into and staff answered no problem. One came over to help as I had a lot md stuff in the car without asking and then went off to help someone else as I got near the end of my load. This help not expected or asked for but nice to get

It’s a self service centre so try to be nice to them

Gary Moran: Staff were very helpful to us and pointed out where to put each thing. Easy to use machine for paying. Some people looked annoyed when I was there. They wanted the workers to sort out their rubbish. Of course they will not do your rubbish for you so don’t expect that from them. It’s not their job;) it’s a self service centre so try to be nice to them.

John Paul Faughnan: Called in Saturday with a van load of furniture. Staff are very helpful.

Drove in from Swords as Fingal County Council wanted €128 to use the facility there. This place was €70. Well done to Dublin City Council.
