Landfill Keyfob Online Payment System – Extended Availability

As previously notified, due to software end-of-life and increased security requirements for our online payments, the online payment facility for landfill Keyfob holders will require a system update. Laois County Council is now able to extend the original system cut-off of 9th October, 2017 until further notice. In the meantime, please continue to top up keyfobs online and we will provide advance notice of any system downtime that may be required.
