The Waste Management (Prohibition of Waste Disposal by Burning) Regulations, 2009 (as amended) specifically prohibit the disposal of household and commercial waste by burning, also called backyard burning.
The Litter Management Plan 2019-2022 was adopted by Limerick City and County Council at the September 2019 meeting. The plan sets objectives and actions for the prevention, control and management of litter for the period 2019-2022.
Litter is any substance or object dropped, dumped or discarded, which is or is likely to become unsightly and which is visible from a public place. Examples include chewing gum, cigarette butts, sweet wrappers, plastic bags and plastic bottles.
