Litter Management

Litter is anything from a cigarette butt, cigarette packaging, takeaway packaging, drink cans, plastic and glass bottles, chewing gum and wrappers - you name it, the list is endless. Items left on the ground at bottle banks and recycling centres are liter!

Leaving or throwing litter in a public place is an offence which is subject to an on-the-spot fine of €125.oo or a maximum fine of €3,000 in court. The Council is also entitled to be awarded costs incurred in the investigation, clean-up and prosecution of cases.
