Waste Management for a Zero-Waste Future

As Ireland move away from ‘landfill’ culture, many traditional dumps are closing down or are drastically altering their services, to meet demand for waste and recycling services that minimise environmental impact. We are focused on investing in new technologies and waste processes in an endeavor to reduce waste and increase recycling rates.

In the last 10 years, Fitzgerald Skip Hire have been striving to avoid going to landfill. All waste collected from the customer is brought back to the Fitzgerald’s Waste Facility where it is sorted and graded in accordance to size and waste type then shipped to other licenced recycling facilities for further processing, meaning zero landfill.
