Dublin City Council Misinformation

category dublin | bin tax / household tax / water tax | news report author Monday January 16, 2006 16:34author by Bin Tax Campaigner Report this post to the editors

Dublin City Council are lying about the amount of households who've paid the Bin Tax.

Last week DCC claimed that 95% of households have paid the Bin Tax. Today they claimed it was 80%. Here are the accurate figures as provided in a reply to Cllr. Joan Collins (Ind.).

Waiver: 40,000 households
Fully Paid: 35,000 households
Not paid/Arrears: 36,000 households

So over half the households due to pay have not paid the tax in full or have not paid at all. This does not take into account the fact that many households have withdrawn from the service (one quarter nationally) and that rates of non-payment are much higher than average in working class areas of the city.

Check Indymedia for info on public meetings throughout Dublin this week.

Dublin City Council has said 213 householders in Donnybrook and Grangegorman did not have their waste collected today as they had not paid domestic waste charges or their bins were not registered. On the Grangegorman route, 170 bins were not collected and in Donnybrook, 43 households were affected. Overall, the council estimates that 14,000 householders will be affected by its new policy, which it is rolling out on a route-by-route basis over the next few weeks. Non-compliant householders face fines from Ä125 to Ä3,000.

'The policy, which was introduced yesterday in Rathmines and Grangegorman, will be extended in coming months to all districts in the council area, according to a spokesman.' (IT extract)

Twomey had said yesterday that it would be extended to all districts in the council area over four weeks.

Not sure on what basis they can fine someone for non-payment. As far as I am aware they do not have the authority to impose fines merely for non-payment. Surely they would have to take someone to court first.
It don't even use their "service". I usually bring my rubbish in small amounts to a litter bin outside the local shops 50 yards from my home.

Does anyone know what the anti bin tax campaign did to stop the council yesterday?

Shame on you for dumping your waste in the public bins. You cheap skate!

Pay for your own mess and don't stick it to others.

Protesting and not paying your charges in protest is one thing. Sneaking around dumping your litter in public bins is another. Why not just dump it over your neighbours wall or go fly tipping?

Do you also park in disabled bays? Do you pay a TV licence?

Shame on you. Shame!

First off there are several meetings of the local bin tax campaigns taking place tonight. There might have been one or two last night.
The steering committee of the campaign met on Monday.

And the second story is true. Somebody from Finglas told me that the place in question is the Jolly Toper and that the council made several calls intimidating the staff with threats about the meeting. (I think it may have to do with postering even though announcing meetings taking place within 7 days is permitted under the act).

I recently built a house in Ballyfermot and DCC are refusing to give me bins because my next door neighbour (mother in law) hasn't paid her bin taxes. I bought the land off her and it is all legal and has nothing to do with her now but still they refuse to give us bins.

Can they do this? I have sought legal advice and not meny have come across my situation.
