New regulations to change to pay-by-weight bin charges were signed by then Minister, Alan Kelly, in January of this year. At the time he heralded it as a saving for 87% of customers. This is proving to be far from reality.
Bin companies have not only changed to pay-by-weight, but have also introduced massive increases in service charges. These sneaky charges will mean huge price hikes for customers.
Minister Coveney must act.
Róisín again raised this in the Dáil yesterday.
