Greyhound Acquires Household Waste Collection Service From South Dublin County Council

Greyhound Recycling and Recovery has bought the household waste collection service from South Dublin County Council area after a competitive sales process. The Clondalkin-based waste management company will now provide a new household waste collection service to over 70,000 homes in south county Dublin.

Greyhound Recycling and Recovery has confirmed that there will be no increase in the cost of bin collections, that it will honour all existing waivers and that it will immediately introduce new reduced pricing options and packages. The new bin collection service will commence from Monday, 4th April next with bin collection days and payment methods remaining unchanged for customers throughout the South Dublin County Council area.

“The decision to purchase the business was founded in our belief that we can improve the existing service while also offering unbeatable prices and greater value to householders throughout south county Dublin,” explains Brian Buckley, managing director of Greyhound Recycling and Recovery. “This is a significant step in the ongoing development of the company and it strengthens our position as the largest waste recycling and recovery business in Ireland. Our customers can be assured that we will recycle more of their waste than any other waste collector.”

He adds: “We intend to provide an improved service for customers in south county Dublin and to attract new customers by guaranteeing to provide the most competitive prices in the market and by providing the best service with the highest recycling and recovery rates.”

Greyhound Recycling and Recovery already provides a waste collection service to over 500,000 customers and will now extend its green, brown and black bin collection service to new customers in south county Dublin.

Over 50 staff currently employed by South Dublin County Council will be redeployed within the council or transferred to Greyhound Recycling and Recovery in compliance with TUPE legislation.
