Abstract

These Regulations provide for the granting of waste permits by local authorities in respect of specified waste disposal and recovery activities in lieu of a licence by the Environmental Protection Agency under section 39(1) of the Waste Management Act, 1996. The Regulations also provide for the registration by local authorities of the storage of hazardous waste, in excess of specified amounts, at its place of production and for the registration by the Environment Protection Agency of certain waste recovery activities carried on by local authorities. Section 39(1) regulating the licensing of activities regarding waste shall not apply in respect of the carrying on by a person of a waste recovery or disposal activity specified in Parts I or II of the First Schedule if and for so long as the person carrying on the activity complies with specified conditions. The main condition is that the activity is being carried on in a manner which does not cause, and is not likely to cause, environmental pollution.
