Notification of revised charges at Waste & Recycling Facilities

From 3rd  April 2017, the following revised charges will apply at Kerry County Council’s waste and recycling facilities:

Weighbridge Charges

  • The price of waste, weighed on the weighbridge, increases to €350 per tonne (minimum charge €25).
  • The price for bagged waste remains at €4.50 per bag and €25 for six bags of household waste.

Recycling Charges

  • The price of ‘Eco Sense’ Recycling Packs increases to €8 per pack of four.

Plastic, Paper and Newspapers

Customers who wish to recycle plastic bottles, paper, newspapers and magazines must purchase ‘Eco Sense’ Recycling Bags at waste facilities and dispose of these items in the ‘Eco Sense’ bags. 

There will no longer be free receptacles for these items at our facilities. All other domestic recycling streams will continue to be provided free of charge.

These charges are in line with charges presently in place by other local authorities and by private operators in Kerry and are designed to maintain and protect the future viability of our waste and recycling facilities in the county.
