Home refuse & recycling collection - Cork

    hi, i need to organise collection for my home rubbish and recycling. I'm living on my own in ballincollig and i wont have much refuse. I may only fill a plastic bin once a month or so.

    The thing is, all of the collection companies charge per year at roughly €300 a year.

    Is there any company that i can just buy tags when i need it or any company that would suit one person on their own with little rubbish?

    hi, I too live in Ballincollig and don't have much waste.

    I use O' Donoghue (based in Waterfall -021 4544004)
    System works like this. You put a €10 into the bin (I taped a clear plastic bag on to the inside lid of mine), put out your bin and call them to collect whenever you need

    No annual fee
