Poll: Should householders be charged for recycling bags?

Greyhound previously gave Dubliners free bags to put their recycling in – but no more. What do you think?

DUBLIN RESIDENTS whose household waste is collected by Greyhound will, from today, have to pay for recycling their household rubbish.

Previously customers were given recycling bags for free, which they could fill and have collected free of charge, as an incentive for them to recycle as much of their household garbage as they could. Now, however, customers will have to buy these bags.

Having to pay for the bags could remove the incentive for customers to recycle as much as they can – and puts some householders at a disadvantage, compared to others who have green bins that are still collected free of charge.

But then again, people outside of urban areas have to pay for their recycling – while those who use municipal recycling centres also have to pay for the privilege.

So, today we’re asking: Should householders be charged for recycling bags?


Poll Results:

No (1261)
I don't know (716)
Yes (327)
