Under the new Department of the Environment legislation of July 25th 2012 it is now up to the householder to prove that they either use a Brown bin kerbside service or have the mechanism in place to home compost, and this is to help combat illegal fly tipping and back yard burning of waste. A team of inspectors will be assigned to monitor this compliance with FPN’s or Fixed Penalty Notices of circa €45 per offence imposed for infringement of the laws.
