There have apparently been a few “teething problems” with the recent transfer of Dublin City Council’s refuse collection service to Greyhound . Reports of late collections and missed collections have been making the papers , online forums and radio phone-ins.
At the moment there are some other companies that are offering bin and refuse collections in Dublin.
Which company has the lowest bin collection charges in Dublin ?
(Prices shown are for black bins. All the companies empty green bins for free if you put them out with the black bins)
Greyhound charge a €100 annual service charge and €6 for each bin emptied.
Thorntons charge €50 annual fee and €7.50 per bin with a 5% dicount if you pay online.
Oxigen have 3 options
a) – a €20 per month fee with no further charges
b) €60 annual fee and €8.85 per bin
c) No annual fee but €14 per bin emptied.
Ozo charge €20.42 a month.
Based on a bin being collected every 2 weeks – that is 26 bins a year – the cost would work out the cheapest at Thorntons at €233 for the year.
Next cheapest would be the €20 a month option from Oxigen – coming in at €240 for the year.
In third place in the price comparison is Ozo at €245.04. If you want to pay the whole year up front – Ozo will charge €220.50 – which works out the cheapest overall.
In fouth place in the price comparison is Greyhound at €256 a for 26 bins in a year.
