My Waste – Commercial Waste Campaign

By February 28, 2023Events

Following on from our coffee morning and presentation on Wed Feb 22, we are in support of making our business and work environments more Eco friendly.

Please take a minute to read the following and support this initiative by engaging with Sharon Cameron at Mayo County Council for help and advice.

Many of the signs and posters are currently available FREE of charge from the MCC but may not be going forward.

The ‘My Waste’ website is a very useful website for correct and up to date information to help you manage waste from your home and in your business.

In Ireland 70% of the contents of the commercial general waste bin could be redirected to the recycling or food waste bin. Correct waste segregation can help you save money, ensure you are waste compliant and also help the environment.

There is a section of the website designated for business use which contains really useful resources for businesses of all sizes to help you manage your waste correctly.

Resources include training animations for staff, downloadable posters and also a service where hard copies of good quality posters and bin labels can be ordered for free.

There are also some good testimonials from businesses already using the My Waste Materials including one from Clarkes Filling Station in Ballina.

Also please visit where you will find information on increasing biodiversity and protecting bees and other pollinators through simple actions you can take at your business premises. These include options for businesses that do not have an outdoor area
