SOME local recycling centres will close temporarily next week as staff shortages impact on services.

Derry City and Strabane District Council said the changes, from Monday 10, are due to staff shortages and resulting pressures on services.

The decision has also been taken to temporarily suspend council's bulky lift service over the coming weeks. 

A spokesperson for council said: "The public should be advised that every effort is being made to keep the majority of our essential services operational within the restrictions in place by the NI Executive and in the interests of public safety and our staff and we hope to resume these services as soon as possible. 

"Further updates can be found on our social media channels.

"You can find information on all current council services here - https://bit.ly/3n5Q0GL."
