Waste Management Bye Laws 2019
Galway County Council have introduced Waste Bye-Laws in relation to the management of waste.
The principal requirement of the bye-laws is for all homes and businesses to ensure that waste arising from that property/business is collected by an authorised waste collector. The bye laws do allow for home owners to share a bin service with neighbours. Similarly, the bye - laws take into account the use of Civic Amenity Centres by members of public. In all instances, it is important that a home or business owner maintain a record of their waste management arrangements, including receipts, in order to demonstrate that waste arising from the property is being managed appropriately.
A private residence or business must ensure that the temporary storage of waste pending collection must comply with the bye-laws.
