Annual waste collection

Dublin’s councils should organise an annual ‘big waste collection’ for recyclable furniture and make it available free for those who need it.

Smart bins

We need more smart bins around the city that can use solar power to decompose waste.

Take bin collection back into control of the council

The privatisation of the bin service is a disaster. Waste companies are charging high prices – then dodging their tax obligation by locating in the Isle of Man. Waste is being dumped around the city by those who cannot afford to pay, creating a health hazard. It needs to be brought back under public ownership.

Make Dublin plastic-free

Ban single-use plastic in all public buildings. Impose special rate charges on supermarkets who use needless plastic wrapping.
