Wicklow County Council Adopt Ireland’s First Waste Management Plan For A Circular Economy

The plan warns Ireland’s current waste generation rates are unsustainable and have a direct impact on our climate and the use of precious raw materials.

It also provides a roadmap to a more circular economy, including increased waste prevention, more recycling, and improved reuse and repair practices. 

This new plan also recommends additional State investment of €40 million to achieve the desired outcomes.

The plan also aims to encourage sustainable consumption, with proposals for more awareness campaigns, education programmes, demonstration projects, as well as promoting the correct use of collection bins, be it at home or at work.
