Dubliners urged to report bonfire material to council

Dubliners have been urged to report bonfire material to Dublin City Council in the lead up to Halloween.

In a statement, a council spokesperson said: “Dublin City Council will carry out dozens of stockpiling raids removing bonfire material across the city between now and Halloween as part of its drive to promote a safe Halloween that all the community can enjoy.”

The local authority is encouraging people to get in touch if they see bonfire material being gathered in their area.

Richard Whelan of Dublin City Council’s Waste Management Services says: “Dublin City Council is asking you to report stockpiling of bonfire material to us as soon as possible so that we can remove the material and avoid the risk of serious injury, damage to property and our environment over the Halloween period.

“We have received great assistance from the public in recent years and we ask people to assist us again in 2022 to prevent illegal bonfires in the city.

“We are putting in place an extensive action plan for the Halloween period to ensure that we remove as much material as possible to help ensure a family friendly Halloween for all.”

To report bonfire material, you can call (01) 222 2222 or (01) 679 6186 (Evenings and Weekends) or visit www.dublincity247.ie
