# not off to a flyer
If you're living in north Dublin, you might want to ignore this recycling flyer
Because it isn’t legitimate. Fingal County Council has posted on social media this evening warning residents to be on their guard.

FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL have warned residents of north Dublin to ignore a recycling flyer that has been put through letterboxes in the last few days.

The flyer advertises a ‘Free Recycling Day’ with the opportunity to dispose of car batteries, laptops, TVs, wardrobes and all sorts of other things that wouldn’t be allowed in a regular recycling bin.

The council says the flyers are bogus and are to be ignored as they could lead to illegal dumping.

The date of collection named is tomorrow, 14 October. The precise target area in Fingal is not currently known.

The council could not be reached for comment this evening, although a number of councillors stated that the online missive was the first they’d heard of the bogus flyers.

Such flyers are not a particularly remarkable find in Dublin letterboxes, so the council’s step of warning residents specifically is a little unusual.
