These collections are for householders only
The collection is carried out by a private contractor on behalf of Wicklow County Council under Hazardous Waste Licensing Legislation.
It is not always possible to predict the amount of hazardous waste materials which will be delivered to the collections. As materials must be kept separately, stored and sealed in protective containers in the truck and because they are hazardous, there is a limit to the space available for each type of item.
MATERIALS MAY NOT BE LEFT AT THE LOCATIONS OUTSIDE OF COLLECTION TIMES.
FINES FOR LITTERING WILL BE ISSUED.
