Hogan describes bin charge increases as ‘opportunistic’ - Environmental News | The Irish Times
LOL Greyhound.
Greyhound Recycling last month announced increases of 50 cents a month for customers on a flat monthly charge, 50 cents for each black bin collection for customers who pay by the lift and two cents a kilo for customers who pay by weight only. In a letter to customers, it described the levy as “tax imposed by the Government of Ireland on the people of Ireland”. However, following a complaint to the [National Consumer Agency] that the by-weight increase was 76 per cent more than the [government landfill levy] increase, Greyhound reduced the charge to an additional one cent a kilo.

Greyhound agrees to change consumer contracts and make refunds - National Consumer Agency
Take note, switchers:

'The National Consumer Agency (NCA) has received a commitment from Greyhound that it will amend certain terms in its standard consumer contract, which the NCA thinks are unfair to consumers. This will be done by January 18 2013.

Among the terms considered unfair by the NCA are that consumers must forfeit their credit balance and pay a €45 administration fee, if they cancel their contract with Greyhound within 12 months. If you were charged money in these circumstances, Greyhound has agreed to refund you.

Greyhound will communicate these changes to all of its consumers by 18 January 2013. If you have any questions about the changes or getting a refund, you should contact Greyhound directly.'
