A whole series of by-laws to deal with waste management are to be introduced by Tipperary County Council through the Southern Region Waste Management Orginisation, writes Noel Dundon.
Among the by-laws being considered is the prohibition on leaving a wheelie bin on the roadside/footpath – a move which is sure to cause unrest due to the fact that waste collectors will not go into a property to bring the bin out for emptying.
The draft waste presentation of bye-laws were presented to the Environment Strategic Policy Committee of Tipperary County Council on May 9th and it was agreed to circulate the draft waste presentation bye-laws to the full council for review at the June meeting.
Phillippa King attended the meeting of the council in the Lakeside Hotel in Ballina and there was much discussion and debate surrounding the proposed by-laws, which also include policies on presentation of waste at bring centres, and dealing with waste for rented accommodation.
The draft waste presentation bye-laws will be put out for public consultation for a period of two months and adverts will be placed in all the local newspapers and will also be published on the Tipperary County Council website.
Submissions will then be considered at the next Environment Strategic Policy Committee meeting and the draft plan will then be submitted to the full council for ratification.
