Last night.

City Hall, Dame Street, Dublin 2

Sinn Féin members join a protest against  new bin charges outside the monthly Dublin City Council meeting.

Waste collectors will be allowed to offer a range of pricing plans – such as standing, per-lift or per-kilogramme charges, as well as weight-bands or weight allowance charges.

    This protest I’m all for – the pay by weight with greyhound was very high when I was on it. Costing me upwards of 40 a month. Moving house soon so Ill go back to bags methinks.

    There is literally nothing to be protesting or moaning about. Everyone has to pay.

    Bin charges, water, all that 32 county nonsense… the shinners are so painfully populist.
    Like the rest of the country really, more tar and a witch-hunt against people on welfare.

    Good on Sinn Fein! Great how once an issue gets momentum they appear right at the front.

    Are these the same pay-by-weight bin charges that we’ve all been paying down this end of the country (County Sligo) for the last couple of years? But now it’s hit Dublin, it’s suddenly a big deal? I didn’t hear the Shinners on Sligo County Council protesting at the time!

        Very interesting, I’m sure, but nothing to do with the bin charges which we’ve been paying for a couple of years.

    Anyone thinking that transferring waste management functions back to the Local Authority will do anything for efficiency or cost effectiveness is cracked.

    There isn’t a Local Authority in the country even approaching a basic level of competence.

    Lets let everyone get everything for free… free dole, free water, free waste, free roads, everything free, and with no tax. Free free free. The only thing these ****’s are free on is a grip on reality. Morons.
