Submissions are invited on the draft National Hazardous Waste Management Plan 2021-2027 and the supporting Strategic Environmental Assessment and Natura Impact Statement. Written submissions or observations can be made by email by 5pm on 17 September to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Environmental Protection Agency has prepared a draft National Hazardous Waste Management Plan (NWHMP) for the period 2021 to 2027. This is the fourth National Hazardous Waste Management Plan and is made under Section 26 of the Waste Management Act 1996. It sets out the priorities to be pursued over the next six years and beyond to improve the prevention and management of hazardous waste, taking into account the progress made since the previous revised plan, and the waste policy and legislative changes that have occurred since the previous revised plan was published. The purpose of this plan is to protect the environment and human health in Ireland through best-practice management of hazardous wastes.
