Environmental Issues

Bring Centres Provision


There are 58 bring banks in Fingal, making it easy for you to recycle. Please note that it is an offence to leave any litter outside banks at our sites.

To find your nearest bring bank please use the following link:  

Most bring banks are open 24 hours.

However, please don’t use glass banks during the night as the noise may disturb local residents.

Bring banks have up to three types of recycling containers. What you can bring depends the containers on site.

  • Glass banks: You can recycle glass bottles and jars. Separate them by colour – clear, green and brown. Please don’t put in ceramics, window glass, pyrex cookware or drinking glasses. They’re made of a different type of glass and will contaminate all other items in the container
  • Can banks: You can recycle drinking cans. Please crush the cans so we can fit more in the container.
  • Textile banks: You can recycle clothes that are in good condition. Please don’t put in duvets or pillows.


What if the bring bank is full?

Contact us at (01) 890 6291 and we will arrange for the banks to be emptied.

Please do not leave bottles on the ground beside the bins, this will be considered as littering and is also a health and safety risk.

Please don’t leave empty boxes, bag or bottletops or any other items beside or on top of  the recycling containers.

This is littering and you could be fined up to €150 if you’re caught. There may be CCTV cameras in operation at the bring banks.

Bring your empty cardboard boxes, bags, and bottle tops home, tear them apart and put them in your green bin.

If you don’t have a green bin, bring them to your nearest recycling centre.
