The generation and management of waste is an everyday challenge which the people, businesses, industry and institutions of the Connacht Ulster Region must recognise and address. In our daily lives we produce non-hazardous, hazardous and sometimes toxic wastes. These wastes have the potential to impact negatively on our communities, our health, our environment and future generations if not managed appropriately. Effective management systems are needed to ensure we continue to live in healthy communities and protection is afforded to our environment.

What is the Waste Plan?

To manage our wastes in a safe and compliant manner, a clear strategy, policies and actions are required. The Waste Management Plan for the Connacht Ulster Region is the framework for the prevention and management of wastes in a safe and sustainable manner. The scope of the waste plan is broad and ultimately it needs to provide policy direction setting out what we want to achieve and a roadmap of actions to get us there.

The Connacht Ulster Waste Region

The Connacht Ulster Region is a new region in terms of managing wastes, and merges a number of smaller historical waste regions. It is one of three regional groups of authorities assembled in the State for the purpose of managing wastes. This is the first waste plan to cover the geographical area of the Connacht Ulster Region. The new region stretches from Galway in the west, to Donegal in the north and to Monaghan in the north east and in total consists of 9 local authorities. The region has appointed Mayo County Council, as the regional lead, to act on behalf of the other authorities with responsibility for the successful implementation of the plan.
