Waste Management Permit - Site or Facility

The Waste Manangement Acts 1996-2008 require that any facility which is involved in the recovery or disposal of waste shall hold a Licence, Permit or Certificate of Registration depending on the nature of the activity. Waste Management Licences are issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) while Waste Facility Permits and CoRs are granted by Local Authorities for privately-operated waste facilities.

Waste Management Permits and Certificates of Registration are governed by the Waste Management (Facility Permit and Registration) Regulations 2007 and the Waste Management (Facility Permit and Registration) (Amendment) Regulations 2008.  These new Regulations came into force on the lst June 2008.

Examples of activities which require Waste Management Facility permits or CoR's include land reclamation, car dismantling, composting centres, recycling of Construction & Demolition waste and recycling of vegetable and cooking oils.
