Dublin Council refusing to collect untagged bins

Householders in Dublin who have not paid their waste charges may not have their refuse bins collected from today.

As of this morning, Dublin City Council is introducing a new policy on a few routes in the city that will see waste collectors refusing to pick up rubbish left out by people who are in arrears.

Instead, the bins will be tagged with a label informing the owner who to contact to settle their account.

The Rathmines and Grangegorman areas are expected to be the first affected, but more routes could be added later.

The council insists the measure is necessary in order to be fair to people who do pay their waste charges.

It has also warned that households who ignore the new policy and leave their bins on the street could be fined up to €3,000.
