Community Gain Fund
A Community Gain Fund has been established by Dublin City Council in accordance with statutory approvals obtained for the Waste to Energy project. The fund will be administered by the Community Gain Liaison Committee and will consist of:
- A capital contribution from the developer, Dublin Waste to Energy Ltd., equivalent to 3% of the capital costs of the Waste to Energy facility. This contribution is estimated at €10.3m and will be made over the 3 year construction phase. Dublin Waste to Energy Ltd. has commenced making contributions to the fund. The schedule of contributions from Dublin Waste to Energy Ltd. to Community Fund is available here.
- An annual contribution per tonne of waste accepted for thermal treatment. This contribution will be €1 per tonne from the first year following commissioning of the plant and thereafter will be updated in accordance with the consumer price index.
