Beware of illegal waste collectors operating in County Galway. It is illegal to collect waste without a permit and illegal to give your waste to an unpermitted collector.
Always ask to see a waste collection permit before you give your waste to any collector. Keep a record of the permit number and receipts. A permitted collector will have their waste collection available for inspection and if you are in any doubt check with your local authority.
If any member of the public suspects a collector is not permitted please contact Galway County Council’s Environment Section on 091-509510 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Environmental Protection Agency reporting app SEE IT, SAY IT at www.epa.ie/enforcement/report/seeit/.
All reports are treated in strict confidence.
