“We’ve removed [all of the trash cans] because of the GDPR law.”

GDPR does NOT prohibit the use of trash cans — the Irish Data Protection Commission tells Irish postal services provider.

Irish postal service provider, An Post, removed all trash cans from the main hall of a central post office building, after an internal audit identified them as a potential risk of breaching GDPR.

The Irish DPC said that “under no circumstances could public litter be in breach of GDPR” and the trash cans have since been reinstated.
