“The management of waste can be quite a daunting and expensive prospect for many companies, but this site will help them to navigate the entire process properly.

“It will also give businesses and other users from across Northern Ireland direct access to a wide range of waste management solutions that can improve their profitability and competitiveness,” he continued.  

To ensure that contains the most relevant up-to-date information, Invest NI collaborated with the Environment and Heritage Service (EHS) throughout its development.
