The chapter examines the tensions between the policy discourse of ecological modernization, through the Irish state's regional waste plans and the potential construction of waste incineration facilities; and the local narratives surrounding mobilization processes of community movements. The chapter describes how community mobilization and environmental movements have successfully introduced recycling practices and challenged concepts of industrial growth and ecological modernization.

Keywords:   Ecological modernization, regional waste plans, waste incineration, local narratives, community mobilization, environmental movements, Ireland
