Dubliners Urged to Report Bonfire Material

Dublin City Council is promoting a safe and enjoyable Halloween for everyone this year. Bonfires are illegal and Dublin City Council encourages the public to report any stockpiled material in one of the following ways:

Call Dublin City Council’s Litter Hotline on 1800 251 500

(Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm)

Call Dublin City Council’s Customer Services Centre on 01 222 2222

(Monday – Friday, 9am-5pm) or 01 679 6186 (Evenings and Weekends)

The Council will carry out dozens of stockpiling raids removing bonfire material between now and Halloween as part of its drive to promote a safe Halloween that all the community can enjoy.

Simon Brock of Dublin City Council’s Waste Management Services says, “Dublin City Council is again putting in place an extensive action plan for the 2017 Halloween period. We are asking you to report incidents of stockpiling of bonfire material to us as soon as possible so we can remove the material and avoid the risk of serious injury and damage to our environment over the Halloween period. ”

Dublin City Council removed in excess of 420 tonnes of bonfire materials during the Halloween period in 2016 in response to 280 reports of stockpiling from the public through the various reporting channels in the council.  The excellent cooperation received every year from An Garda Síochána is also essential to the success of these operations.
