Regulations on the Shipment of Hazardous Waste within Ireland
Hazardous waste is waste that is dangerous or potentially harmful to health or the environment.
As previously advised, Dublin City Council is replacing WRMS with the Waste Transfer Management Portal (WTMP). WRMS is no longer available and WTMP goes Live on Monday, October 23rd at 07:00.
If you have not already registered for WTMP, please contact Dublin City Council at the appropriate email address as soon as possible:
For this reason it is important to manage all hazardous waste safely and to create a traceable record of all hazardous waste movements.
The European Communities (Shipments of Hazardous Waste Exclusively within Ireland) Regulations 2011 were introduced on 1st July 2011 to streamline the administration of legislation on the movement or shipments of hazardous waste exclusively within Ireland.
Dublin City Council has set up a tracking system using Waste Transfer Forms (WTFs) as part of the online Waste Transfer Management Portal (WTMP). Use of this system by those managing hazardous waste movements is compulsory.
To use it you are required to (i) register with DCC to create an account, (ii) purchase a WTF at a charge of €6 per form, (iii) complete the WTF online and (iv) download the WTF. The WTF must be signed and accompany the waste while in transit. The receiving facility must login to the online system to validate acceptance of the load.
Information on how to register as a user of the system and instructions on how to purchase Waste Transfer Forms is currently contained in our External User manual - DCC – WTMP User Guidance Document (dublincity.ie)
