The march finished in Daunt Square where it was addressed by an Sandra Condon, an activist with Householders Against Service Charges (HASC) who was jailed in 2001 for opposing Cork City Councils' policies. A number of recently elected city-councillors also spoke. read full story / add a comment

The High Court this morning ruled in favour of a case appealed from the
Circuit Court on behalf of the Dublin City Campaign Against the Bin Tax.

applied bin charges for the years 2001/2002, on the basis that they defied
their own criteria and failed to provide incentives for re-cycling. read full story / add a comment

UP TO 2,000 elderly citizens in Limerick will be forced to pay for their refuse collection for the first time next year following the axing of a waiver system.

The Irish Independent has learned that the city manager has received legal opinion that the waiver scheme is not legally grounded.

Since the privatisation of the refuse collection in Limerick over two years ago, the local authority had been paying up to Ä200,000 per annum to waste collectors. The subvention is, however, set to be terminated from the end of this year. More than 2,000 now face charges of Ä320 per annum. read full story / add a comment
