Council seeks your views on new draft Litter Management Plan by 31st March

Do you have any views on litter in Dublin City? What do you think are the key litter issues in the city? How could more be done to tackle illegal dumping, dog fouling or abuse of litter bins?

If you have views on these or other issues then Dublin City Council wants to hear from you. The council intends to develop a new Litter Management Plan for the period 2016-2018 and is asking for members of the public and interested groups- such as residents’ association and business representative groups to give them their views on or before Tuesday 31st March.

Brian Hanney from the Waste Management Division says “Dublin City Council has devoted considerable resources towards tackling the litter problem in recent years and we acknowledge that we cannot make progress on litter without the support of communities, business and people all over the city and suburbs. Our Litter Management Plan sets out our priorities for litter and street cleaning for the next few years and we are asking the public to help us decide what these should be.”

Some of the key issues in the current Litter Management Plan are:-

  • Street Cleaning
  • Dumping
  • Litter Bins
  • Dog fouling
  • Graffiti
  • Illegal posters

The existing plan can be viewed on the Dublin City Council website at

Submissions can be made in email or in writing before 5pm on Tuesday 31st March 2015.
