Managing waste  in  a ‘sustainable and self-sufficient  manner’ will  be one of  the  key challenges for the Connacht  Ulster  Region (CUR), and one  in  which  every  citizen  has  a role  to  play. There is a consensus that we should minimise our impact on the environment by working collectively to minimise the amount of waste we generate, and manage the waste we do generate in the best manner possible.

The Region has made significant progress in waste management and waste prevention during the lifetime of previous plans but challenges remain.  The plan provides a framework within which all stakeholders can make a contribution to the successful implementation of the policies it contains.

As part of the preparation of the waste plan a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) has been undertaken.  The purpose of SEA is to ensure that the environmental consequences of the waste plans are assessed both during their preparation and prior to their adoption.

Public consultation is a fundamental part of the waste planning process and the lead authority on behalf of the region has engaged with stakeholders and interested parties from the start of the process. Submissions and comments received to date have been considered in the preparation of the Draft Regional Waste Management Plan.
