Farm Hazardous Waste Bring Centres

Hazardous waste should not be stored on farms and in many cases the presence of this waste on farms is illegal and may leave a farmer open to prosecution. Because of this, The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in association with Teagasc, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Local Authorities will operate ten bring centres for farm hazardous waste across the country in October and November 2014. This is an excellent opportunity for famers to safely dispose of their hazardous waste and we encourage farmers to avail of it and avoid the possibility of prosecution.
