Introduction of incentivised waste collection charges.

As you all are probably aware The Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Eamon Ryan, has signed new legislation, the Waste Management (Collection Permit) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2023, introducing incentivized charging for waste collection in the commercial sector from 1st July 2023. 

A study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revealed that 70% of the average commercial waste bin contents could be recycled, and 60% of food waste bins are edible, causing potential material loss and high costs for businesses.
