Not that long since they added a charge for the green now time for all 3 to go up.

Old priceNew Price
General Waste Bin€ 9.90€ 10.50
Recycling Bin€ 1.00€ 1.25
Compost Bin€ 4.90€ 5.25

25% for green
just over 6% for he other 2
As well as the annual charge.

There are at least 2 companies that come up the road in big diesel trucks.

No mention of any change to the service charge. For those like me who rarely need to put out the black bin, they are still by far the cheapest option, Greyhound's cheapest plan is more than twice what I pay annually. City Bin's Light option is ~70% more expensive.

Is that pay as you use?

I'm with Oxigen in Louth, and the charges are higher than that - waste bin is €12.50, green bin is €5.50 and composting bin is €7.50 per lift. There's also a €60 per yr service charge.

Yes, €70 annual service charge with the above per lift charges. Any of the other operators I've looked at in Dublin only offer monthly payment plans with charges starting at €15.90 per month with additional charges if you exceed 30kg black bin waste per month.
