Intro Text 

Please beware of illegal waste collection flyers being handed out in the Sandyford/Ballyogan area at present. Here is an example of the leaflet.  

If you receive promotional literature through your letter box advertising waste collection services, please satisfy yourself that the waste collector is permitted to operate this service in the dlr area. It is important to note that while it is in breach of Waste Management legislation to collect waste in the absence of a valid waste collection permit, it is also an offence to hand over control of your waste to anyone other than a permitted waste collector.

If you are found guilty of such an offence you may be prosecuted. If you are in any doubt about the validity of a waste collector’s authorisation, please contact the Council on 2047954, or email wasteenforcement@dlrcoco.ie, and we will be happy to provide advice and clarification.

Alternatively, the National Waste Collection Permit Office (NWCPO) has a full list of registered waste collectors and can be found here.
