Recycling

Under the waste management hierarchy minimisation, re use and recyling are the preferred options to landfilling of waste. These options are part of National and EU policy and are reflected in the City Councils Waste Management Plan. Currently the city has many bring sites and one Civic Amenity Centre. These sites accept a variety of goods for recycling.

In addition there is a facility at the Civic Amenity Centre for acceptance of green waste i.e grass cuttings, hedging etc. for composting.

Home composters are also available on application to: -

Cork County Council,
Room 610, Floor 6,
County Hall, Cork.
