WICKLOW County Coun­cil of­fer a num­ber of handy steps you can take to bet­ter man­age the waste you gen­er­ate.

There are five re­cy­cling cen­tres in the Gar­den County: the Mur­rough in Wicklow town, Bray, Ark­low, Avoca and Ram­pere in Baltinglass.

A wide range of ma­te­ri­als can be re­cy­cled free of charge.

The cen­tres also take elec­tri­cal goods free of charge, as well as poly­styrene pack­ag­ing and large and small scrap metal items like old iron­ing boards or bikes.

Bring glass bot­tles, jars and drinks cans to your near­est bot­tle bank fa­cil­ity. Please keep these sites clean, hav­ing re­spect for the lo­cal com­mu­nity and busi­nesses that pro­vide space.

Only use waste col­lec­tors who can pro­duce a per­mit for waste col­lec­tion.

Bo­gus col­lec­tors will dump waste il­le­gally. A cheap or handy op­tion can lead to a heavy fine for you. Don’t be fooled by a cheap price or a sob story.

Home com­post­ing or us­ing an or­ganic waste col­lec­tion is the so­lu­tion for 30 per cent of the typ­i­cal house­hold’s waste, in­clud­ing your gar­den and food waste.

In­form your­self about waste ma­te­ri­als.

For in­for­ma­tion about waste man­age­ment, dis­posal op­tions for dif­fer­ent waste ma­te­ri­als and avail­able ser­vices, con­tact the en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness of­fice at Wicklow County Coun­cil.
