Bins - Special Meeting Request


In light of the serious issues that have arisen with DCC's withdrawal from the collection of domestic waste in Dublin City, last night with the support of the FF councillors and a number of Independent Councillors I formally requested the Lord Mayor to immediately convene a meeting with the CEO of Greyhound and the City Manager to address the following issues:

  • Late notification to customers of DCC's withdrawal from the collection of Domestic Waste
  • Up-front payment of €112 is unreasonable 
  • Fixing of charges for only six months is unreasonable
  • Payment arrangements 
  • Clarification on continuation of the brown bin service 
  • Tags collection
  • Alternative operators in Dublin City (i.e. the Manager to identify what competitive operators/choice is available to homeowners in each area of Dublin city) 
  • Details of the contract should be disclosed to the elected representatives 

I will update this site when the Lord Mayor replies.

Mary
