Dublin City Council Christmas Arrangements

Article Posted: Tuesday 16th December, 2008

Here are the council's arrangements for waste collection, tree recycling, etc, over Christmas

The Christmas & New Year period is traditionally one of the busiest
of the year for our Waste Management Services. In light of this the
following arrangements have been specifically organised to cater for
the extra demands on our services.
Household Waste Collections -
Black and Brown Bins:
There will be no waste collection service on Christmas Day.
Collections scheduled for Christmas Day will take place on
Saturday, 27th Dec 2008.
In addition there will be no waste collection on New Year’s Day.
Collections scheduled for New Year’s Day will take place on Saturday,
3rd Jan 2009.
Waste collections will take place as normal on all other dates.
Green Bin Collections:
Householders whose green bin is full may place additional
dry recyclable material beside their green bin on collection
day provided it is presented in a safe, neat and secure manner.
This extended service will be available to Dublin City Council
customers until 31st Jan 2009.
