All households in Donegal will be entitled to a brown bin recycling service under new legislation, which will come into effect in January.
Currently, around 69% of households in Ireland have a brown bin and people who have up until now not been able to avail of the service are being urged to contact their waste collector to organise one.
Among the items that can go into brown bins are food waste, including raw and cooked meat, fish, vegetable and fruit peelings, along with paper napkins and pizza boxes, and grass clippings.
Up to now, the service has been predominantly available in urban areas
“Whether you live low in a valley, or high on a hill, the forthcoming household food and biowaste regulations means everyone, everywhere can now avail of a brown bin service,” said Pauline McDonogh, spokesperson for MyWaste.ie.
