Dry Mixed Recycling Plant

Glass bottles are generally collected separately from premises such as pubs, restaurants and hotels.

It is important that the dry mixed recyclable bins are not contaminated with other materials such as food, nappies, materials contaminated with oils, plastic bags, ashes, clothes, waste electrical equipment, batteries, etc.  These contaminants can destroy good quality recyclables and add unnecessary costs to waste management as well as impact on Ireland’s environmental performance.
