Circular Economy Act Signed into Law

We are pleased to see the Circular Economy Act signed into Irish law – setting reuse and repair targets for businesses and consumers and placing Ireland in a leadership position on the circular economy in Europe.

The Act will help streamline the process for decisions made by the EPA on End-of-Waste and By-Product applications – to allow hundreds of thousands of tonnes of material to be safely and sustainably re-used as secondary raw materials, which is particularly important for the construction sector.
