Does your premises produce food waste?

If your business produces food waste, it cannot go to landfill and must be collected for treatment or treated on the premises.


All food waste must be kept separate from all other waste. It must be made available for a brown bin collection service where it is recycled in a food waste recycling plant for example a composting plant. Alternatively, food waste can be brought directly to a composting plant; or it can be treated by composting it on the premises where it is generated.


Contact your Waste Collector in order to avail of a brown bin collection service.


For more information on the Food Waste Regulations contact Donegal County Councils Waste Regulations Officer or Waste Recycling Officer
