Household Waste Collection Charges
Under the new Household Waste Collection Charging Arrangements announced on the 27th June 2017, waste collectors will be given the flexibility to continue to offer, or to introduce, a range of incentivised pricing options to their customers.
These options include elements or combinations of standing charges, and per-lift, per-kilogramme, weight-bands, and weight allowance charges. A “one size fits all” mandatory, nationwide per-kilogramme charging system will not be implemented. However, ‘all-in flat rate’ charging for household waste will start to be phased out as customers renew or enter new service contracts.
All waste collectors will be required to start rolling-out food/organic “brown bins” to all localities nationwide with a population greater than 500 people. This will help more households divert waste away from their standard black bins. Further consideration will be given to extending ‘brown’ bin coverage in phases to smaller localities.
An annual support of €75 will be introduced for persons with lifelong/long-term medical incontinence. This support will help people meet the average annual cost of disposal of incontinence products. The details and arrangements of this support will be finalised later this year, after further consultation with the stakeholder groups.
