Eastern and Midlands Waste Management Plan
Offaly County Council is one of twelve Local Authorities who comprise the Eastern and Midlands Region regarding waste management planning. The Eastern and Midlands Region is made up of the following Councils – Offaly, Laois, Westmeath, Longford, Dublin City (Lead Authority), South Dublin, Fingal, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Wicklow, Louth, Kildare and Meath.
A six year plan was adopted in May 2015 and it sets out targets and objectives for the management of waste within the region. The focus of the Plan has moved from recycling to waste prevention and specific objectives have been outlined to achieve this.
There are two more waste management regions in Ireland – the Connaught Ulster Region and the Southern Region.
The current plan will be implemented over the period 2015-2021.
