Environment, Climate Change & Agriculture
Our primary objective is to protect, conserve and enhance the rich and natural environment of Mayo.
We are responsible for waste management, environmental monitoring and enforcement measures, pollution investigation and control and the protection of surface water in County Mayo. We support the community through environmental education and awareness programs.
Climate Change is increasingly impacting on our everyday lives and evidence suggests that extreme weather events will intensify in the coming decades. As your council we are working for all our communities to address climate change and the Climate Action Regional Office for the North West of Ireland is based in our Environment Department in Castlebar.
