Polystyrene, glass, bikes, cans, metal...
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.
