Dublin’s Recycling Champion

Sandymount man, Maurice Foyle is not only Dublin’s biggest household waste segregator – he also has a big heart. Maurice has been announced as Dublin’s Recycling Champion, a city wide competition organised by Ireland’s largest household waste company, Greyhound Household . Maurice from Cozy Lodge, Leahy’s Terrace, came in ahead of homes across Dublin by diverting 156kg of waste from black bin to green and brown over a 6 week period. Maurice has generously donated his €1,000 prize to local charities.

Greyhounds John Brosnan, said he was delighted that local organisations had benefited from the prize. Mr. Brosnan said it was interesting that someone from the southside of Dublin won this year’s top recycling prize, given that recent survey’s consistently show that home’s on Dublin’s northside outshine their counterparts south of the Liffey in terms of the amount of waste they recycle.
” With new pay-by-weight legislation due to be implemented next year, it is important that households review their recycling habits. Although waste segregation in the city has risen greatly over the past three years, there is still room for improvement. The new legislation will encourage recycling and , in many cases, help people save on waste collection bills.”

The charities to benefit are the Star of the Sea Church in Sandymount to help automate the ringing of the Church bell after the retirement of Fergus Murray who rang the bell by hand for more than 45 years. Also to benefit is the Iris Charles Centre for the elderly. and the Bath Avenue Residents Association.
