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. Since 2013, the Farm Harardous Waste collection campaign has been a collaborative project led by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) working in collaboration with Teagasc, the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine (DAFM), the Department of Communications, Climate Action & Environment (DCCAE) and local authorities. A total of 9,000 farmers used the 46 collection centres over 5 years. The total quantity of hazardous and potentially hazardous waste collected was almost 1,000 tonnes.
