Welcome to Dublin Waste to Energy!

As part of being a good neighbour, we are pleased to welcome tour groups at the Dublin Waste to Energy Facility. Since beginning operations, we have hosted school groups, community organisations, government officials and many others.

Dublin Waste to Energy was delighted to accommodate a tour of the facility by the Very Reverend Ivan Tonge, Parish Priest of nearby Ringsend. The video below documents his tour of the facility and shows some of his best photographs.

If you are interested in having your group visit the facility, please email dublininfo@covanta.com or telephone 01-6032100.



My sincere thanks for your help in organising today's tour to the facility, for taking the time to present your work so comprehensively and for accompanying us on the tour.
