Intro Text 

On July 1st 2016 the charging arrangements for household waste will change to a new system called Pay by Weight. After this date all households availing of Kerbside collection will have a fixed service charge and a charge based on the weight of waste type presented.

Pay by Weight is a transparent charging system and it will be easier for you as a customer to compare charges between collectors.

Pay by weight is considered the best method to encourage better segregation of household waste as well as maximising waste reduction behaviour. Pay by weight is a key component of Irelands progressive weight policy.

Please contact your waste collector if you have any queries regarding changes to waste charges.
