Poll: Should waste companies be charging extra for heavy bins without approval?

Greyhound this month started charging extra for bin bags over a certain weight, with Panda set to follow suit in July.

THIS MORNING, IT emerged that Irish waste operator Greyhound has started charging extra for black bin bags that exceed a weight of 92 pounds.

Meanwhile, another waste company, Panda, is set to introduce a similar limit from this July.

The companies have taken the decision on foot of the government rolling back on pay-by-weight proposals last year.

But, given the air of uncertainty around the issue, are the waste companies justified in charging extra for heavy rubbish loads?

We’re asking: Are waste companies within their rights to charge extra for heavy bins without government approval?


Poll Results:

No (8928)
Yes (1765)
I don't know (388)
