Sinn Féin calls for South Dublin County Council and Oxigen to clean up their act
Sinn Féin representative for Lucan and Palmerstown Robert Ballesty has described the recent Green Bin collections service in areas of Lucan as 'unacceptable'.
Mr Ballesty said, "I contacted South Dublin County Council in the run up to Christmas in relation to the collection of the green bins in Lucan. Several residents had contacted me to state that the green bins were not being collected on their allocated collection day, with the result that the bins were posing a litter problem in the area.
"We received more complaints over the Christmas period from residents annoyed that their Christmas week green bin collections didn't occur. When contacted, Oxigen were unable to offer any reason as to the non collection of bins. Only to assure us that they would catch up on collections in the following week.
"In a week where households produce more recyclable waste than at any other time in the year, I am calling on South Dublin County Council and Oxigen to immediately provide a special collection for the households that have been neglected in the past month."
