Of the 40 arrests, 29 have been charged. A further four have been reported to the PPS, six have been released on bail and one is still being questioned.
A total of 29 police officers have been injured during outbreaks of disorder across Northern Ireland.
Meanwhile, a tenth night of protests over the restriction of the flying of the Union flag at Belfast City Hall caused traffic disruption across parts of Belfast on Wednesday evening.
Among the areas affected were the Albertbridge Road in the east of the city and the Ormeau Road in the south, with long delays caused.
According to police, all affected areas have since re-opened.
More protests are understood to be planned across Northern Ireland, and in parts of Scotland and England, in the coming days.
