Local authorities are the competent authorities for granting and enforcing Waste Permits and Certificates of Registration issued to private operators for number of waste activities.
The Waste Permit and the Certificate of Registration Database register for waste facility permits and certificates of registration issued by local authorities under the Waste Management (Facility Permit and Registration) Regulations, S.I. No. 821 of 2007 (as amended) has transferred to the National Waste Collection Permit Office (NWCPO).
The Waste Permit and Certificate of Registration Database formerly acted as a register of waste collection permits issued under the Waste Management (Collection Permit) Regulations, S.I. No. 820 of 2007 (as amended). However, since the waste collection permit system was amalgamated into the NWCPO in 2012, waste collection permits are held by the NWCPO.
