Domestic Garden Bonfires


Domestic garden bonfires or burning of waste from domestic properties can affect our environment and may cause a smoke nuisance to our neighbours. If Council is satisfied that the smoke is causing a nuisance it shall serve an Abatement Notice on the person responsible.

Further information on the burning of rubbish is available on NI DIRECT


Each domestic property should have a blue recycling bin, a black wheelie bin and possibly a brown and food waste bin and which should provide sufficient capacity to hold the refuse for their family.  If you find that you do have excess waste please visit for information.
