Householders on South Tipperary County Council’s waste collection service can expect up to a 20% reduction in fees as a result of the take-over of the service by Clean Ireland Recycling at the end of the month

Waste management service operators, Clean Ireland Recycling,who officially take over the service on October 31st stated this week that householders can expect to get a cheaper service by up to 20%.

The company marks the commencement of operations by rolling-out a free recycling bin, which will replace the existing ‘recycling bag’ used by householders, to all customers within the first month of operations.

Clean Ireland Recycling will also distribute its glass recycling bins to householders in larger urban areas and offer a free clothes collection that will net a local charity – yet to be decided – a significant annual contribution.

Clean Ireland Recycling - which already operates household collections in Cahir, Cashel and Tipperary - will follow-up the roll-out of the recycling bin by making its brown-waste composting bin available to all customers in the county over the coming months.

Customers will also, on transferring over to Clean Ireland Recycling, receive Easy Pay cards, which will enable them to pay their bill in part or in full at the large number of Post

Point outlets across the county.

Commenting on the signing of contracts with South Tipperary local authorities, Clean Ireland Recycling Chief Finance Officer Caroline Walsh said that the deal will be a win-win for all involved, not least householders.

Ms Walsh also confirmed that Clean Ireland Recycling will be maintaining the waiver system in operation by South Tipperary County Council for a period of 12 months as well as continuing to provide free collection to a variety of Tidy Towns and other community groups around the county.
