SAY NO TO HAZARDOUS WASTE STORAGE AND TREATMENT IN YOUGHAL sign now

ERAS ECO at present are a waste management company specializing in the treatment of sewage sludge from industrial, pharmaceutical and municipal sources. Up to 110,000 tons of non-hazardous waste annually.

The plant is Located in Foxhole next to Youghal's landfill site on the shores of Youghal bay and adjacent to the beautiful Blackwater Estuary a specially protected area of conservation for wild birds and nutrient sensitive waters with a fragile Eco - system.

Eras Eco has breached its EPA licence exceeding emissions of harmful pollutants daily over the past 3 years with no notification to the public on potential consequences to health and environment.Youghal has no waste water treatment facility meaning most of all the waste from our toilets goes directly into the sea untreated this coupled with the emission from landfill and sludge plant is disastrous to our health and environment.

All individuals are responsible for what waste they produce and leave behind .The corporate industries systems are there because we depend on them .They feed off our needs
Awareness and education on the ways to minimize this need and reduce waste in your home and community to foster a cleaner lifestyle is the only way forward for us and our children
