Cllr Nial Ring, Cllr Damian O'Farrell, Cllr Christy Burke, Cllr Anthony Flynn, Cllr Pat Dunne


Chief Executive’s Response

The regulation and enforcement of waste collections are the responsibility of the relevant local authority under section 33, 34 and 35 of the Waste Management Act 1996 (as amended). In 2011, the Waste Management (Amendment) Act 2011, provided a legal mechanism by which the first Regional Waste Management Plans could be made.

The Eastern Midlands Regional Waste Management Plan 2021 will build on the integrated approach to waste management established in the previous plans. Priority will be assigned in accordance with the waste management hierarchy with a strong emphasis on waste prevention, reuse and recycling. The future regional policy in the plans will take cognisance of all relevant and pending regulations, provide a framework for the management of priority waste streams and promote sustainable waste practices at local, business and industrial level.

This is not a matter for the Development Plan.

Chief Executive’s Recommendation

Not agreed. Outside scope of the Development Plan.


Council Meeting Decision

The report and recommendation of the Chief Executive was AGREED and that the Motion be referred to the Climate Action, Environment & Energy SPC.
