When my broadband price changes during my contact term I can terminate my contract and switch provider without penalty, so why would my bin contract be different?
It's just another service provider.
Has anyone got information like this about leaving their contract?

I received an email from City bin also "the most appropriate (cheapest) option for you is plan 1 below. You don’t need to do anything to avail of this plan, you will be switched automatically on July 1st."
Weekly standing Charge 2.25
Black Bin 0.39 pkg
Brown Bin 0.32 pkg
Green Bin FOC
I was given no other option and from the looks of things this is the most expensive option available.
If even one company was to show they weren't profiteering form the new legislation I would sign up immediately, as I'm sure most other people would too. :mad:

Does a household have to have a bin service?? Could you hold onto your waste in you own bought bins and bring it to a civic amenity centre at regular intervals at a cheaper cost than the current proposed cost from the bin companies?

At least they say they'll be publishing a different price plan for the occasional user next week. That's where some of us are seeing a big rise, with a yearly charge no matter how many or few times we put the bin out.

That will just be a lower service charge with much higher price per kg the same as all the rest!

When DCC 'sold' their bin collection to Greyhound in a secret deal, not one bin company would quote us for our bin collection. Panda were collecting bins in our road and Thorntons were collecting nearby as well as Keywaste.
There was clearly some type of embargo over the changeover. I never found out why, but then Citybin started up and have been far superior to Greyhound - even forcing Greyhound to cut their charges.

I don't rate Coveney's chances on getting a result. I think they actually have scored a glorious own goal again and cannot get out of it fast enough. The industry is run by private enterprise and they are entitled it would seem to seek a fair price to do the work, although there is evidence here that they won't thread on each others patch.

Have a feeling the consumer is going to lose out on this one, even if Coveney bats the issue away for a year it will come back with teeth.

What would be a much fairer system in terms of polluter pays is a lift fee plus a price per kg

Repak have had people sifting through the general waste brought in to the waste centres and the incinerator in meath
Separating materials that are recyclable from the general waste
Expect a damming report that we are no recycling enough
Therefore justifying the pay by weight system
Convey has forced them
To lift green recycling bins for free
Which is a mistruth in it's self
It's just waffle
It's like asking mc Donald's to give milkshakes for free
And now charge the same for a Big Mac as last year
The service charge is a way to recoup the losses the companies will have by collecting recycling bins
The bottom has fallen out of the paper markets

AWD have told us that if a customer is on pay by lift now and not on a contract then they will be moved to pay by weight from July 1st. They are no longer offering the pay by lift option. Are they correct in doing this does anyone know?
