Greyhound collects unregistered bins


Waste firm Greyhound today maintained its bin services for Dublin households which have yet to pay their collection charges.

Householders had been given until close of business yesterday to make a payment of at least €62 to retain the service.

However, following a large number of complaints about its service, the firm continued to collect refuse from unregistered householders.

Several parts of the north inner city including Phibsboro, Drumcondra and East Wall where bins and bags had been uncollected for several days were cleared of refuse today.

Earlier this week, Greyhound left warning letters on unregistered bins, advising householders their bins would not be collected unless part of the annual service charge was paid in advance.

North Inner City Fine Gael councillor Ray McAdam said the company had no right to demand upfront payment from householders given the problems with the service.

“It’s quite clear that despite what Greyhound is saying bins and bags are not being collected across the city.”
