South Tipperary County Council, through Cashel Recycling Centre, was a finalist at the Repak Recycling Week Awards 2012 in the Repak Civic Amenity/Recycling Centre of the Year Award 2012 category, sponsored by REHAB Glassco
Waller’s Lot Civic Amenity, also known Cashel Recycling Centre was opened to the public in September 2006. It is run by the Local Authority and it is South Tipperary’s first purpose built facility of its kind. It is also the first recycling centre in Ireland to achieve both ISO 14001 and EMAS accreditation. It serves as a Transfer Station as well. Waller’s Lot is located on the edge of Cashel and in 2011 it attracted over 8,500 users from the surrounding towns of Tipperary, Cashel and Clonmel. They accept a wide range of materials at the facility including gypsum which is unusual among sites of this kind and has proved to be a very popular service with users.
