Council reports ‘huge increase’ in amount of face masks and gloves being discarded in public areas

COUNCIL officials are reporting a “huge increase” in the amount of face masks and gloves being discarded in public areas.

In a statement Mid and East Antrim Borough Council said: “We have seen a huge increase in the amount of single-use face masks and gloves being discarded across the borough.

“If the face covering/gloves are single-use, dispose of them in a waste bin – do not put them in a recycling bin.

“Please take responsibility for your actions and protect our environment.”
