The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has two brochures on the effects of wood smoke on the health and environment of the local community. These brochures are available in several formats that councils can use to spread the message of how to minimise the harmful effects of wood smoke on the local community and the environment.

  1. Information for owners of wood heaters
  2. Wood smoke affects your health and pollutes the air
