Due to recent changes by Dublin City Council waste collection is becoming increasingly difficult in Dublin.

There are many regulations that both customers and waste collection companies must abide by. These hanges are called waste bye-laws.

Customers of Waste collection companies can only out their bins out for collection at specific times.

Customers outside of the Central Commercial District can only put their waste out for collection after 6.p.m on the day before collection.

Customers living within the Central Commercial District cannot display waste for collection before 5.p.m on their designated collection day.

The council may also allocate a specific collection point where customers will have to place their bin in order for it to be collection by their waste collection service. (To see a map of the Central Commercial District look at the Dublin City Council Website http://www.dublincity.ie/WaterWasteEnvironment )

In regards to waste collection companies there are also many regulations within the bye-laws. 

If customers leave out their bin and it is over-loaded, companies cannot collect the bin.

All waste must be inside the waste container with the lid closed.

Companies are only permitted to collect waste outside the Central Commercial District on the designated collection day between 6.a.m – 9.p.m Monday to Friday and 8.a.m – 8.a.m Saturday and Sunday.

Within the Central Commercial District waste companies are only permitted to collect customers waste on the designated day between 7.pm- 12 midnight.

According to the bye-laws all customers of waste collection companies must enter into contract with an authorised waste collector for both household and commercial waste.

Items excluded from collection are glass, hazardous waste, electrical and electronic equipment and bulky waste such as carpets and rubble.

With these new bye-laws disposing of your waste is very difficult.
