Environmental Enforcement Section
The Environmental Enforcement Section deals with complaints relating to Air and Noise Pollution, and Illegal Waste Activities including Backyard Burning, Illegal Waste Collections and Dumping.
The Section is also responsible for the enforcement of Waste Management legislation.
The Council has a number of "Bring Bank" facilities across the County area for recycling glass, cans and textiles. These include sites at supermarkets and public car parks, that are all provided free of charge to the public.
Please note that commercial waste is not accepted at any of these facilities.
Note Regarding Waste Collection
Dún Laoghaire/Rathdown County Council transferred its household waste collection service to private waste companies in 2010.
Any person or company engaging in the collection of waste for profit, where the collection of such waste is not incidental to their main business activity, requires a Waste Collection Permit by law. It is an offence under the Waste Management Acts 1996-2015 to operate as a waste collector without a valid permit.
