Almost €12million spent on Naas landfill raises concern
8 Dec 2015
Concerns are being voiced that almost €12million has been spent on a Co Kildare landfill but still no timeframe for a remediation project. Labour Deputy Emmet Stagg recently met with Minister for Environment, Alan Kelly, in a bid to get a timeframe on the development of Kerdiffstown Landfill in Naas. Minister Kelly advised Deputy Stagg that €11.78 Million has been invested in the project to date, initially through the Environmental Protection Agency and since June 5th by Kildare Co. Council when they took over control of the site. Significant further funding will be required over the coming years which will be determined by tendering process but the Minister indicated that he anticipated that a significant proportion of the funding available for landfill remediation in 2016, will go towards the remediation process at Kerdiffstown.
