Kerbside collection of paper recycling to stop

The Commissioners have taken the decision to stop the collections of paper for recycling with immediate effect. In recent years the volume of paper collected has reduced dramatically and it is no longer viable financially or environmentally responsible to continue with kerbside collections. This will also free up resources that can be diverted to other tasks throughout the parish. The Commissioners are keen for residents to continue recycling their paper and encourage the use of the recycling ‘bring banks’ located throughout the parish. Paper, glass and metal can be deposited at these sites, which are located at: St Marks, Derbyhaven and in Ballasalla – Abbotswood, Lower Clagh Vane, Railway Station, Rushen Abbey and the Commissioners Offices. Additional bring banks will be introduced within the redevelopment of Upper Clagh Vane and the new Dandara development once completed.

The grass collections (orange bin) have also now finished for the year, a decision on when and if these recommence will be made in due course. Please do not use the orange bin in the meantime for general waste as these will not be emptied.

Malew War Memorial

The Commissioners are pleased that after several months the repairs to the edge of pavement railings and adjacent limestone wall have been completed. The manufacture of the new railings has enable an additional handrail for the steps to be included. This has made  access to the memorial itself much safer.

 

 

The Commissioners take their responsibilty for the mainentance of memorial very seriously. Last year prevenative repairs to the cross were made to stop further facturing of the stone. This was carried out as a result of  recommendations received  after an extensive  survey by structural engineeners.  Ways to further enhance the area are being considered and investigated.

The memorial was unveiled on Wednesday 18 July 1923 by the Lieutenant Governor Sir W. Fry. It was dedicated by the Vicar of Malew.
The memorial was designed by P.M.C. Kermode. It was carved from limestone by Mr W. Kissack, of Scarlett, assisted by Mr C.H. Cubbon, stone mason, of Castletown.
