Notice on Prohibition of Burning Waste


Bonfires and the burning of waste are illegal and should be reported to the relevant Operations area:

  • Balbriggan/Swords Ops:             01 890 5596

The lighting of bonfires is prohibited. 

Please remember: bonfires are dangerous, cause injury to children each year and cause damage to your environment. 

When we make staff available to clean up after bonfires and reinstate open spaces, they can’t carry out normal maintenance duties.

Don’t leave out materials for use in bonfires.

Don’t allow a bonfire on your local open space.

Remember, it’s your local environment – protect it.
