Dubliners Urged to Report Bonfire Material

Dublin City Council is promoting a safe and enjoyable Halloween for everyone this year. All bonfires are illegal and Dublin City Council is asking the public to report any stockpiled material.

The public can do this through:


The Council will carry out dozens of stockpiling raids removing bonfire material between now and Halloween. It’s all part of its drive to promote a safe Halloween that all the community can enjoy. This includes family-friendly Halloween events around the city, licensed fireworks displays and Dublin Fire Brigades Safety awareness campaign.

The council will use #dubsafehalloween  to promote this on social media and is encouraging the public to use this hashtag when posting their own safe Halloween content. Dublin Fire Brigade will use #firesafety on social media promoting the Dublin Fire Brigade Safety Awareness Campaign.

Brian Hanney of Dublin City Council’s Waste Management Services says, “Dublin City Council is again putting in place an extensive action plan for the 2015 Halloween period. The main focus is to promote a safe and enjoyable Halloween for the citizens of Dublin through various events and festivals across the City and to minimise the impact of environmental and social consequences of bonfires and illegal fireworks through preventative actions and awareness raising activities”.

Dublin City Council removed about 1,500 tyres and 750 tonnes of bonfire material last year.
