Aughnagun Landfill

Aughnagun Landfill Site opened in 1996 and is currently where Newry and Mourne District Council’s domestic waste is deposited.

The site had an original capacity of 1,300,000 cu. m.

The current usage of the site is approximately 42,000 tonnes per annum. 36,000 would be Newry and Mourne’s domestic waste, 6,000 tonnes would be commercial operators.

The current capacity of the site is approximately 900,000 cu. m. giving a projected lifespan of approximately 14 years.

A high percentage of the domestic waste that enters the Landfill Site could be recycled, such as green waste, glass, paper, cardboard, wood and metal, textiles, plastic, mixed cans, etc.

It is the public’s responsibility to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to STOP these valuable commodities going to waste.

The Landfill Site has an adjoining Civic Amenity Site (1 of 7 in the Newry and Mourne Area) for the public to recycle.
