Farm Hazardous Waste Collection Campaign

 Farm Hazardous Waste Collection

The Farm Hazardous Waste Collection Campaign was established to provide farmers with an accessible location in which they can safely dispose of hazardous waste. The scheme is led by the EPA in collaboration with Teagasc, the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine (DAFM), the Department of Communications, Climate Action & Environment (DCCAE) and local authorities. Whilst some waste is free of charge to dispose of, other types range in price from €2-4 per kilogram. Following a successful pilot, the programme has been running for four years and to date 6,807 farmers have utilised this service, disposing of over 800 tonnes of hazardous waste.

Dates for the 2017 Collection Campaign can be seen below. For all the latest news on Farm Hazardous Waste, please follow @EPAWasteRes.
