Dublin City Council collects more than 441 tonnes of bonfire material
Published on 21st November 2022
Dublin City Council collected more than 441 tonnes of stockpiled bonfire material in the run-up to Halloween this year.
That figure is down on 2021, when 515 tonnes was collected. The corresponding figure for 2020 was 550 tonnes.
Dublin City Council’s Halloween Response Group was led by the Waste Management Services section and included Parks, Housing, Area Offices and Dublin Fire Brigade. The Group worked closely with An Garda Siochana.
Dublin City Council began collecting material as early as late August and ramped up collections in the 10 days leading up to Halloween, when on-call out of hours crews were available North and Southside.
Dublin City Council is satisfied that its efforts in collecting bonfire material and organising more than 60 events across the city on the night itself, helped to make Halloween 2022 a success.
A debrief and review of activity will take place in the coming weeks with all stakeholders.
