Greyhound Household, the country’s largest domestic waste company , has called on people to make a special effort to use their brown bins over the Christmas period. Greyhound says almost
95% of people don’t utilise their brown bin while more than 40% don’t us it at all.
Greyhound’s Group Managing Director, John Brosnan said:
“The Christmas period sees a big increase in the amount of food waste generated. We are encouraging householders to place this extra waste in their brown bins. Greater use of brown bins will save households money on collection fees; cuts down on bin contamination and helps the environment.”
The company has launched a competition to encourage people to segregate their waste over the holidays and beyond. Householders who use their brown bins for food and other compostible waste will automatically enter a weekly draw for a €100 voucher.
