Collectors of household waste, which includes waste collected from apartment blocks, are required by the conditions of their permit to provide for the separate collection of recyclable waste. Waste statistics, including figures on household waste recycling, are available from the Environmental Protection Agency's website
A Template for a Bye-law on Waste Presentation is being prepared by the three regional waste management offices with a view to standardising such by-laws across the State. It is understood that the template will contain specific provisions for multi-user buildings and apartment blocks, including with regard to the storage and collection of recyclate. Once the template is finalised, it will be open to local authorities to adopt such by-laws.
