Brid Smith speaking in the Dail, July 5, on bin charges.
BIN CHARGES: ‘DIG DEEPER IN YOUR POCKET’…THE CHEEK OF THEM!
I spoke in the Dail last night and reminded the Minister of the rotten history of these charges…privatisation, loss of waivers, increasing costs and illegal dumping, and crucially – the profits of the operators who registered off-shore to hide how much they make off us. I put the PBP proposal: Fund local authorities to run the services. Meantime – an immediate price freeze before abolotion of all charges.
