The EPA has developed a dedicated financial model to facilitate and streamline the reporting to the EPA of compliance with Section 53(A). Landfill operators are required to complete the financial model in full, and submit this to the EPA annually.

The completed financial model must be emailed to the EPA @ S53AReturns@epa.ie.
Any queries in relation to the use of the financial model also should be made via S53AReturns@epa.ie
