Recycle IT – COVID-19 – 2021

Overview 2021

Recycle IT plan to remain open for electrical, electronic and pure metal recycling DROP OFF and COLLECTIONS during Level 5 of the Plan for Living with Covid-19. Recycling services are included in the list of essential services which can operate.

Following a recent Cabinet meeting the Government has decided to introduce COVID-19 Level 5 restrictions during late December 2020. These restrictions are due to be in place until further notice.

The Government say that over the coming weeks, we have a real challenge individually and collectively. With much of society and the economy closed, we all have choices to make which will have a significant impact on how we manage Covid-19 in 2021. To learn more click here.

These restrictions mean all counties in Ireland are Level 5 from midnight on 30 December 2020. At present Level 5 restrictions will remain in place until further notice. The Government will monitor and issue regular updates based on the status of the virus and on public health advice.


The priority is to minimise disruption to essential services but again this is subject to change. This means that some services will be moved online and some businesses and public services will be closed. You can learn more by clicking here.
