Burning of Waste

The burning of waste is illegal.

This includes the burning of waste in;

-          A barrel or exposed heap in a yard or garden

-          A purchased ready-made home incinerator

-          Burning commercial waste on a business premises of farmyard

-          Burning waste on a building site

Burning waste is not only a nuisance to neighbours it can release many harmful chemicals into the air. Such practices lead to the release of toxic dioxins which are a hazard for peoples’ health and the environment. Many people may believe that they are doing the right thing in reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and saving money but in fact they are both causing long term environmental pollution and causing possible damage to their health and that of their children and neighbours.

The Waste Management (Prohibition of Waste Disposal by Burning) Regulations 2009 prohibits the burning of waste within the cartilage of a dwelling.

Failure to comply with these regulations is an offence and fines of up to €3,000 may be imposed.

Making a complaint

You can report any suspected cases of burning of waste to The Waste Enforcement Section on 021-4924739
