The Circular Economy Act has been signed into law!

This is just the beginning of a transition to an Ireland where everybody benefits from the environmental, social, and economic benefits of all reusable resources.

What does the Act do, though?

➡️ shifts Ireland away from a “take-make-waste” economy
➡️ incentivises the use of recycled and reusable alternatives to wasteful, single-use disposable packaging
➡️ moves Ireland closer to being among the first in the world to eliminate disposable drinks cups
➡️ tackles illegal fly-tipping and littering

We’re excited, alongside our 40+ community based members and stakeholders, to work on making the transition successful.
