New increase in garbage fees for 140,000 households

Another increase in garbage fees is imminent.

he waste collection department of the semi-state Bord na Móna has imposed the second price increase this year on its thousands of customers.

Bord na Móna Recycling has 140,000 household customers and operates in Leinster and North Munster.

The Kildare-based company announced they would be increasing the monthly service fee by €1.70 from early next month.

Also, in February this year, the monthly service fees for its customers were increased by €2.

Last month, Panda Recycling, which has 360,000 residential customers, increased its bin lift fees by more than 12 percent and also raised its service fees.

From September 5, the fee for a bin lift increased by €1.13 to €10.25, a 12.4 percent increase.

The semi-annual service fee increases by €4.86 to €62.50. That means the annual service fee is €125, an increase of 8.4 percent.

Last December, Panda Recycling announced a 4.8 percent increase in refuse collection services, or €1.20 per month.

This means that a customer who has their bin collected every two weeks pays €50 more per year for their waste collection service.

Last year Thorntons Waste announced that it had increased its annual service fee from €70 to €75.

Bord na Móna said the price change is in response to continued exceptional cost increases due to global events that no one could have foreseen at the beginning of the year.

“We are fully aware of the cost pressures that all households are currently facing.

“We regret that a price increase for our customers can no longer be avoided.”

Bord na Móna said it continues to strive for efficiencies across our business and said it will make every effort to minimize the impact of increases on our customers.

The semi-state operates three different tariffs for its private customers.

It has a standard service plan where customers pay a 12-month service fee. There is also a pay-by-weight plan and a pay-by-lift plan.

Its waste subsidiary was called Advanced Environmental Solutions (AES).

Increases in garbage collection fees come at a time when a series of price increases are being pushed through, pushing inflation to a 40-year high.

Electricity prices are increasing by more than €1,000 per year for the average household and further price increases are to be expected. The price of heating oil has doubled since last year.

Diesel and petrol are on the rise, and grocery bills are expected to be €660 a year higher than last year, according to market research firm Kantar.

Taxi prices have recently increased by 12 percent.
