Limerick input sought for waste management plan

THE people of Limerick are being invited to have their say on a new draft plan that aims to tackle the significant challenges around all aspects of waste in Ireland.

The National Waste Management Plan for a Circular Economy is Ireland’s framework for the prevention and management of waste from 2023 to 2029.

It aims to shift Ireland towards a more circular economy where resources are reused or recycled as much as possible and therefore waste generation is minimised.

The private waste sector in Ireland is valued at more than €1.4 billion and provides employment for around10,000 people. Local Authority expenditure on waste functions exceeds €280 million each year and involves over 1,700 people.

The public consultation is open until July 3. Submissions or observations can be made here
