Large-scale opposition to Kildare County Council’s approval of recycling facility in Kilcullen

Kildare County Council have granted permission for a recycling facility in Knockbounce Business Park, Kilcullen, Co. Kildare despite widespread opposition from locals within the town. 

The applicants intend to build a dry-waste recovery/recycling management facility for inorganic waste material, including an ‘End of Life’ Vehicle recovery facility, vehicle compactor, non ferrous metals store and an office/admin area as well as associated facilities such as weighbridge, a supervisors hut and set down areas.

The site is close to a number of established housing estates.

There was a public meeting organised to inform locals and organise an appeal to An Bord Pleanala against the decision but at the time of writing no appeal has yet been registred with the Board.
