What We Do

LAPN is all about the activities of local authorities in their own regions to support resource efficiency and waste prevention in a wide range of spheres such as:

  • Schools
  • Communities
  • Homes
  • Local Authorities themselves
  • Other organisations
  • Events

There are many different projects in place and completed on many different topics.
Some key deliverables in recent years include:

  • Dedicated, motivated, knowledgeable and trained local authority personnel implementing effective waste prevention and resource efficiency programmes in their functional areas locally
  • A dynamic network of local authorities working in partnership and collaborating across functional areas, sharing resources and knowledge to avoid duplication of effort and achieve efficient implementation of initiatives
  • Local authority personnel acting as local contact points for businesses and communities seeking advice on becoming more resource efficient
  • Cross-linkages with all other NWPP projects, e.g. Green Festivals, Stop Food Waste, Greening Communities, Green Business, SMILE etc.
  • Themed LAPN Working Groups, e.g. Greening Public Events; Food Waste; Water etc.
  • Local area green community partnerships, e.g. Macroom-E, Corca Dhuibhne Glas, Green Map Carlow etc.
