Collection points for hazardous waste from Irish Farms have been set up this week.
The service offers farmers a chance to get rid of any unwanted waste from their farms and they can do so until the end of November. In total there are 11 different collection points, where waste can be deposited for safe disposal.
The service is being offered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in conjunction with the Department of Agriculture, Department of Communications, Climate Action and the Environment and also Teagasc. Local authorities are also involved and will be assisting the operations.
Many farmers can dispose of their waste free-of-charge, though there is a fee of between €2-€4 per kg on some items.
