Waste Management

Waterford City and County Council have a role in promoting and facilitating the reduction and recycling of waste generated in Waterford.

Waste Prevention and Recycling

We do this through education programmes such as the Green Schools Programme and work through our Environment Awareness Office. Promotion is also carried out by the Southern Region Waste Management Office, on behalf of local authorities in the Ireland South region.

We also provide facilities through our network of Bring Banks and our two Civic Amenity Sites at Kilbarry, Waterford and at Ballinamuck, Dungarvan.

Recycling List Ireland

To keep up with international standards in recycling, the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment have drawn up a list of the materials you can put in your household recycle bin. Please make sure items are clean, dry and placed loosely in the bin. If it’s not on the list, it’s not in the recycle bin.
