Dubliners Urged to Report Bonfire Material

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council is once again promoting a safe and enjoyable Halloween for everyone. Bonfires are illegal and Dublin City Council is asking the public to report any stockpiled materials that they become aware of by:

  • Calling Dublin City Council’s Customer Services Centre (01) 222 2222 or after hours at 1800 293949
  • Reporting ‘bonfire materials’ online at http://www.dublincity247.ie/

Simon Brock of Dublin City Council’s Waste Management Services says ”Last year Dublin City Council removed 600 tonnes of bonfire materials ahead of Halloween.  This prevented the risk of serious injury to youngsters and damage caused by bonfires to the environment, parks, green spaces and property in the city. We need the public’s help to do this and we are calling on people to report stockpiling of bonfire material to us as soon as possible so we can remove it safely.  We have received great assistance from the public in recent years and we are calling on people to assist us again in 2019”

We acknowledge the excellent cooperation received from An Garda Síochána in this work, which is essential to the success of these operations to keep everyone safe this Halloween.
