Local Authorities Receive Over 78,000 Environmental Complaints in 2019

Local authorities received over 78 thousand environmental complaints in 2019, most of which related to waste issues.

Figures released by the Environmental Protection Agency show there were 515 more environmental prosecutions in 2019 compared to the year previous.

The agency has welcomed an increase in the number of inspections being carried out, but says further action is needed to protect Ireland's rivers and lakes, with water quality continuing to decrease.
