**Pay no more than €229 from January 1st 2013**
A new pricing structure for Galway City Council's domestic refuse collection service will come into effect on January 1st 2013. Customers with 3 wheelie bins (a brown bin, a green bin and a grey bin) are guaranteed to pay no more than €229 per annum. Bins will still be weighed on collection and if you weigh less, you pay less. Existing customers will automatically move to the new pricing structure on January 1st 2013. New customers can sign up for the service by returning an application form by post to Refuse Department, City Hall, College Road, Galway or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Waste management is widely recognised as one of the most problematic issues facing Ireland’s environment. Too much waste is generated in this country and too much waste is sent to landfill.
Over the last few years, Galway City Council have worked hard to address these problems and have introduced a range of services and initiatives aimed at encouraging households in the city to manage their waste correctly and responsibly.
For more information on these services and initiatives, please use the links on the left hand side of this page.
