Where stands the Shared Bins project?

And can they be trialed in the North Inner City?

At the February meeting of the City Council earlier this week, I requested an update from the Chief Executive, Owen Keegan on the delivery of the Shared Bins project.

In seeking this update, I wanted to establish what progress had been made to date in evaluating the initiative; the next steps in the project; and when will a recommendation be presented to each of the five administrative areas for potential roll-out in local areas such as Stoneybatter, for example. The Chief Executive replied by advising that the project is exploring whether shared, on street, residential waste bins be a useful solution to improve our waste services and also reduce illegal dumping.

The ‘Shared Bins’ BETA Project is at the initial concept stage which means that it’s exploring whether there’s a ‘good idea’ there, including learning about any pros and cons. Concept stage trials are always removed at the end of the learning period.

While I understand the trial has not yet gone live, I can now confirm that based on the Council’s callout for trial locations, the Chief Executive hopes to be in a position to begin this trial during February. I have asked him to include the Stoneybatter area during this trial period and when I have confirmation of the trials proceeding and the chosen locations, I will share more details here.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions or queries about this project.
