The provision of litter bins is carried out in accordance with the Litter Bin Replacement Protocol as set out in the Litter Management Plan 2015-2019. The protocol sets out the basic principles for litter bin placement to provide consistency and appropriate coverage in all parts of the county.

Locations where requests for bins should receive priority for litter bin placements are:

• Town and village centres

• Vicinity of shops such as newsagents, food retailers, supermarkets

• Areas where people congregate e.g. bus stops, tram stops, post offices, public service buildings / offices

• Main routes to schools

• Larger parks greater than 16 hectares in size e.g. in the vicinity of play grounds and dog runs

All sites considered suitable for bin placement are subject to capacity of the location to facilitate safe access for maintenance vehicles (side loader).

Locations that are not considered suitable for litter bins as they tend to attract dumping and vandalism are:

• Residential areas with no mixed usage, in particular cul-de-sac type developments, as they attract dumping of household waste around the litter bins

• Parks less than 16 hectares in size where located in residential areas, unless some demonstrable demand exists that cannot be met by bin placement on street

In managing this service, the Council is mindful of all costs when considering requests for new bins. These include not just the initial purchase and installation cost, but must also have regard to the ongoing maintenance and servicing costs for each new bin.

Where a request is received for a new/replacement litter bin, each location will be assessed having regard to the criteria set out above, as well as the existing provision of litter bins nearby i.e. within 400m. It is neither desirable nor effective to simply provide litter bins on a request basis.

The provision of additional bins in the Lucan and Adamstown areas can be examined further upon receipt of specific details regarding locations where they are required.

Requests should be sent to the Senior Engineer, Public Realm Section, Environment Water & Climate Change Department, South Dublin County Council, County Hall, Tallaght D24 YNN5 or emailed to cccounter@sdublincoco.ie.
