Civic Amenity Sites play an important role in waste management in Ireland. Ballymount Civic Amenity Site is owned by South Dublin County Council and operated by Panda. The site is open for the disposal of domestic waste and in 2020 tonnages collected at Ballymount saw a substantial increase compared to 2019 in all waste streams including recyclables. 2020 tonnage was 25,361 tonnes compared to 22,992 tonnes in 2019 (increase of 2,369 tonnes or 10%).
Considering the new waste policy and emphasis on the circular economy it is likely that all waste streams will be examined in due course to determine which wastes could be prepared for reuse.
