Transfrontier Shipment of Hazardous Waste

The export of hazardous waste (as defined in the European Waste catalogue) for recovery/disposal is subject to Waste Management (Transfrontier Shipment of Waste) Regulations, 1998.

These Regulations are for the purposes of giving effect to Council Regulation (EEC) No. 259/93 of 1st February 1993 on the supervision and control of shipments of waste within, into and out of the European Community, as amended.

The Regulations inter alia provide for the designation of competent authorities for the purpose of controlling waste transhipments, powers of competent authorities, the imposition of certain requirements in relation to the shipment of waste into or out of the State, and the prohibition of waste imports by the Environmental Protection Agency.

It is the responsibility of Dublin City Council to oversee all transfrontier shipments of hazardous waste in the country and for the supervision and control of each consignment of hazardous waste exported from Ireland.


Movement of Hazardous Waste within the State

 

Re: Change to the current C1 form to an online Waste Transfer Form (WTF)

New Legislation (European Communities (Shipments of Hazardous Waste Exclusively within Ireland) Regulations 2011 S.I. No. 324 of 2011) was introduced by the Department of Environment, Culture and Local Government in July 2011 making Dublin City Council, National TFS Office, the sole authority for the administration of hazardous waste movements within Ireland. The C1 form will be re-named the Waste Transfer Form (WTF), and the charge will be reduced to €6 per form.

The fundamental change to the current C1 system is the move to an online Waste Transfer Form system.  This new Waste Transfer Form administration system requires consignors to purchase and fill in their forms online – the information required is similar to that currently provided on a C1 form and payments may be made online through Dublin City Council’s secure web site.

Information on how to register as a user of the system, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)  and instructions on how to purchase Waste Transfer Forms is available on the Dublin City Council Website through the following link:
