Household Waste

A representative of Laois County Council may have called to your home or you may have received a letter from us in relation to the Segregation, Storage and Presentation of Household and Commercial Waste.

The reason for this was to confirm that you are disposing of your domestic waste in accordance with the law. Under the Laois County Council 2018 Bye Laws you must segregate your waste as follows:

  • Recyclable
  • Organic
  • General

You are advised on this occasion to provide proof of compliance by uploading a picture of your waste collection account summary or receipts from your recycling centre. Please note, all financial data, PPS numbers etc should be redacted as there is no requirement for Laois County Council to collect this data.

Failure to comply with these Waste Bye Laws can result in the issue of an on the spot fine of €75.00.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Environmental Protection Team by email  or on 0578664000.
