Waste collection charges in Co Leitrim are on par or in some cases, cheaper, than many other counties according to figures published in Saturday’s Irish Independent.

The nationwide study of waste collection charges showed that the disposal of the ‘average’ household annual waste of 951kg of waste - made up of 637kg in general waste, 223kg of recyclables and the remainder in compostable waste - was €309 under Clean Ireland Recycling; €344 for Mulleadys Ltd and €350 for Barna Recycling.

Whilst the figures showed that collection costs varied widely throughout the country, it noted that prices were pretty much on par for those imposed in the rest of Connacht.
