The Irish Waste Management Association (IWMA) is a trade association for waste management companies in Ireland. Our Members operate to the highest industry standards and have signed up to the Rules of the Association, that ensure that they provide waste management services to the public and to businesses in a professional and ethical manner.
Our member companies employ more than 7,000 people directly and have a combined annual financial turnover of approximately €1.6 billion.
Our members collect 95% of the household waste currently managed in Ireland and the vast bulk of the commercial, industrial and hazardous wastes.
Our members processed approximately 6.5 million tonnes of waste at our 118 waste facilities in 2019. The bulk of this waste was recycled or otherwise recovered. All our member’s facilities are either licensed by the EPA or operated under a local authority permit.
