On order from Dublin City Council, there will be designated areas throughout the city for the presentation and collection of waste in bags. This will begin on Friday July 1st in accordance with criteria issued by the Department of Environment Community and Local Government.

Intended to create an organised system of waste management, this new measure has been brought into effect as a reaction to problems such as litter caused by ripped bags, litter caused by fly tipping on streets where bag collections take place and lower presentation rates of food waste and dry mixed recyclables. Hence, it is intended that this will bring an end to the collection of household waste in bags.

A list of the many designated areas has been released that will be in effect for sixth months, and will be reviewed within the six months following that.
