There's been an 18% demand for recycling in Dublin, according to the city council.
The local authority says 22,340 tonnes of material was recycled in Dublin city in 2020.
12,000 tonnes of glass was recycled last year, which represents a 34% increase on 2019.
The council says restrictions led to a lot of home and garden improvements, and the people of Dublin emptied their homes, sheds and garages of everything including the proverbial kitchen sink.
6,575 tonnes of material was recycled at North Strand and Ringsend Civic Amenity sites and 4,066 tonnes at Dublin City Council staffed Bring Centres around the city.
Sid Daly, Waste Management Services Public Domain Officer said “It’s great to see so many people recycling as we transition from a linear to a circular economy. In addition to our neighbourhood glass and textile banks, we would encourage everyone to visit our two Civic Amenity Sites and eight Bring Centres where a wide range of different materials can be recycled, including garden waste, WEEE, cooking and engine oils and household hazardous waste such as paint and cleaning products."
