Waste Permits and Licences
Waste collection, recovery and disposal activities are controlled by both the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the local authorities. The Waste Management Act 1996 (as amended) sets out the system of waste licensing to ensure that set standards are applied in relation to licensable waste facilities.
Waste Collection Permits
In order to collect waste for commercial purposes, a waste collection permit must be purchased from the local authority for your area. The Waste Management Act 1996 outlines the procedures for making permit application process.
Waste Recovery/Disposal Permits
Waste permits are also required for specified waste recovery and disposal activities which, because of their size or nature, do not require licensing by the EPA, but can instead be granted by the local authority. Further information is available on the EPA website.
