Water, Waste and Environment

Civic Amenity Sites(CA Sites)

Both North Strand & Ringsend Civic Amenity Site are managed and operated on behalf of Dublin City Council by Greenstar.

Householders are required to separate their food waste from their general waste. Dublin City Council provides a food waste disposal service at the Civic Amenity Sites at Ringsend and North Strand. Please visit www.brownbin.ie for more information.

Household Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste items SHOULD NOT be presented with normal household waste i.e. in the mixed black bin waste for collection. Instead hazardous waste should be separated at source (in the home) and brought to either Ringsend Recycling Centre or North Strand Recycling Centre for safe disposal.

Fire Safety Advice


The Fire Brigade provides Fire Safety advice and runs Fire Safety advice initiatives to highlight the dangers of fire and to provide any advice and help we can.

The 3 Golden Rules 

1. Escape Drill – plan and practice
2. Smoke Alarm – have two and test regularly
3. Survey your home and implement fire safety measures
