|A civic amenity site in the UK.|
In Firgas this month, the local authorities have placed containers in our community for the disposal of cooking oil, clothes and other household waste. These containers are scattered throughout the townland. However, in the UK, it is more typical to find everything concentrated in one place. These areas are called Civic Amenity Sites or Household Waste Recycling Centres. In informal English, they're known as "dumps" or "tips".
