What are the benefits of separating my Packaging waste?

There are significant environmental and economic benefits associated with recycling. Recycling helps create jobs, can be more cost effective than waste collection, reduces the need for new landfills, saves energy, supplies valuable raw materials to industry, and adds to the economy. Packaging waste is actually a resource; it can be re-used, recycled and recovered. All this will help create and secure jobs, help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and improve our carbon footprint and assist in Ireland’s promotion as a green economy.
