East Galway’s Residual Landfill Site has met the EPA’s standards for the first quarter of this year, meaning it has been removed from its list of landfills which did not meet the necessary environmental standards.
The EPA has published its previous National Priority Sites List for Enforcement at the end of January, which included East Galway’s Residual Landfill Site.
Eight sites licensed by the EPA were on that list for failing to meet the necessary standards for the fourth quarter of 2017.
The Galway site was one of five sites which came off the previous National Priority Site List following improvements in compliance.
The following sites did not meet the EPA’s environmental standard: Glenmore Biogas Limited in Donegal, Aurivo Dairy Ingredients Limited in Roscommmon, C & F Automotive Limited in Westmeath, Lacpatrick Dairies Limited in Monaghan, Rosderra Irish Meats Group (Edenderry, Offaly), and T & J Standish (Roscrea) Limited also in Co Offaly.
