Safe Disposal Of Hazardous Farm Waste

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as and from yesterday, farmers across Ireland will once again have an opportunity to safely dispose of hazardous wastes from their farms; same to be collected nationally at ten collection points, during the months of October and November.

The location and dates for this year’s farm hazardous waste collections in Co. Tipperary are as follows:

Date:  25th October – Location Nenagh Mart, Co. Tipperary.

Date:  14th November – Cahir Mart, Co. Tipperary.

Note: Collection centres will open from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm. on the dates shown above.

Hazardous wastes are unavoidably generated through the normal everyday running of a farm, from engine oils & filters to residues of pesticides; and out-of-date veterinary medicines. The removal of these potentially dangerous substances represents a major step in improving farm safety, while reducing the serious pollution risks associated with accidental spillages.

Over the course of this campaign, some 2,000 farmers are expected to participate by bringing along surplus agri-chemicals and other hard-to-manage wastes. The safe disposal of these waste products is important for every farmer in keeping the farmyard safe for themselves and their family; in producing quality-assured products; and in maintaining Ireland’s green and sustainable image.
