Waste Management Legislation

Annotated and Consolidated (Second Edition)

By Donall O Laoire, Thomas Freeman

Fully updating the first edition (published in 2001), this comprehensive commentary on waste management legislation in force in Ireland includes the full consolidation of principle legislation in this complex area of law. The book includes detailed and up-to-date annotations of Ireland's Waste Management Act 1996 and incorporates the numerous and complex amendments which have been applied to the waste management legislation suite, including the recently transposed Waste Framework Directive. The definition of "waste" is explored, drawing on jurisprudence of both the Irish courts and that of the Court of Justice of the EU. Concepts such as "by-products" and "end-of-waste status" are also examined and explained. The book includes: changes brought about by the European Union (Industrial Emissions) Regulations 2013 and the European Communities (Waste Directive) Regulations 2011, including those to the waste management planning and licensing regimes * judicial review in the waste sphere, including protective costs orders and the judgment in Hunter v Nurendale * waste management enforcement in both the civil and criminal spheres, including the recent judgment of the Supreme Court of Ireland in Laois County Council v Hanrahan * a detailed table of offenses under both the principal Act * an up-to-date table of statutory instruments in force * a selection of useful precedents.
