Dublin Waste Management

Question to City Manager City Council Meeting 10/05/2010

Q11. COUNCILLOR BILL TORMEY
Could the City Manager summarise the present position of waste management
competition policy at Dublin City Council in the light of EU competition
policy and the contractual position regarding the Ringsend incinerator.

CITY MANAGER’S REPLY:
Following on from the judgement issued by Mr. Justice William M. McKechnie
(Reference 2008 / 420 JR) with regard to “direction of waste”, the City
Council has amended the condition attached to Waste Collection Permits to
take account of the judgement. The standard condition now provides for the
direction of waste to the highest tier of the waste hierarchy as opposed
to the previous condition which indicated a direction to a specific
facility.
