Bin Charges Compared

With all the various bin collection companies in Dublin these days there are bins out on some streets every day.  Hopefully competition in the bin collection market will eventually mean better service and lower prices for everyone . We have taken a look at the bin charges in the Dublin area to see who  is the cheapest. Not all the bin companies cover all areas – so you will need to check with them to see if they will pick up bins in your street.
Some of the bin companies only give prices to people who make specific enquiries – and the price will depend on where you live .

In the Dublin area these are the prices we found online for bin collections in April 2013.
