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.
