Waste management company Greyhound has announced it is to expand into Galway City, with the creation of ten local jobs.
In a statement this week, a spokesperson for the company said that it made the decision following extensive market research, which found that customers of alternative services in Galway “wanted a fairer deal” after learning that they pay double what Dublin customers are being charged.
While Greyhound operates a different charging mechanism in the Dublin market, it is now presenting householders across Galway City with an equivalent price offer comprising a monthly standing charge of €6.25 with a charge of 9.75 cent per kilo for black bin waste, 3.25 cent per kilo for compostable waste and two cent per kilo for recyclable waste.
“Greyhound is the number one service provider in Ireland because it offers the best value and service in the market and because of our track record for providing a reliable service to 170,000 customers with 45,000 daily bin collections,” said Mr. Buckley.
“Our industry has already beared the consequences of below cost selling and sales gimmicks or smash and grab offers are no alternative to offering householders a fair deal which will stand the test of time. Greyhound is a fully owned Irish company that employs 300 people in Ireland and that pays its taxes in Ireland. We are proud that we are now flying our flag in Galway, to create jobs in Galway and to offer Galway householders a fair deal.”
