New nationally agreed household recycling list

Recycling in Ireland is constantly evolving and in order to keep in line with international standards, what belongs in your household recycle bin has been simplified.
 The new nationally agreed household recycling list is now available from http://recyclinglistireland.ie. It’s easy, if it’s not on the list it doesn’t belong in the bin. Please make sure that all items are clean, dry and placed loosely in the bin.
