My Department provides grant assistance towards the development by local authorities of new recycling facilities such as civic amenity sites. Such assistance is provided, generally at the rate of 75% of approved costs, under the terms of the Waste Recycling Capital Grant Scheme.

The details of this scheme are outlined in Circular WPR 15/08, which issued to all local authorities in July 2008. My Department will consider any grant application which Cork County Council may wish to submit under the terms of the Scheme.
