Dublin City Council will be introducing Pay by Use/Volume System for household waste from 1st January 2005. This system is designed to benefit the environment by encouraging housholds to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste materials and present theirs bins or bags for collection when they full. It quite simple - the less you throw away the less you pay!!! There are also wavier systems in place. In this system waste can be presented in either in a Wheelie Bin or in Tagged Bags. read full story / add a comment

The results of the Local Elections show that the Bin Tax is still a very real issue. In areas where Anti Bin Tax candidates ran serious campaigns the resulting first preference vote was excellent considering the lack of finance and the voluntary nature of those campaigns. read full story / add a comment

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul has urged people to make waste collection charges an issue in the local elections.

The charity has said increasing numbers are calling its helpline for assistance due to the privatisation of public service providers, which refuse to offer waiver systems for those on low incomes.

Society Vice-President John Monaghan has said people who are not even on social welfare are contacting them. "At the head office on the Cabra Road, which only deals with the Dublin area, the number of calls to the society in April 2002 was about 350 in a month. In 2003 it had gone up to 550, and April this year it had gone up to over 1200. Many of those were first time callers, people who are in work but on low pay and are struggling." read full story / add a comment

A new political party launched recently in Dublin 15 has been set up as a result of its members “being used as cannon fodder” in the recent bin tax campaign according to its spokesperson.

The United Communities Party is standing two candidates in the Mulhuddart Electoral area in the forthcoming local elections. The candidates, Paul Hand from Pinebrook Glen and Gerry Murray from Dromheath addressed a public meeting of approximately 50 people in Huntstown Community Centre to launch the new party. read full story / add a comment

Bank of Ireland have achieved their target to recycle 80% of all waste generated in their Head Office in Baggot Street.

They began recycling waste in June 2003 and for the past 8 months they have recycled :-

* 62 tonnes of cardboard - the equivalent of 992 trees.
* 83.33 tonnes of paper.
* Saved 1,720 cubic metres of landfill.

They now plan to improve waste segregation at source to improve things further and cut the costs of recycling.

There are NO under-desk rubbish bins in any of the three buildings; staff have no choice but to recycle all waste.

Here's hoping other organisations follow suit. read full story / add a comment

In the latest leg of the race against waste, it transpired that your service charge money is being used to ship waste to India, illegally. Sorry about the cut and paste (IT - pay per view) but I thought somebody in the Fingal anti-bin tax campaign might have covered it. I suppose they were too busy watching the SF Ard Fheis. read full story / add a comment
