Greyhound watch… …and the most expensive plastic bag I’ll have to buy this year. December 8, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Economy, Irish Politics.
Yep… it’s Greyhound Waste again, and their pre-Christmas surprise.
At €1.50 for 1 bag on a roll of six at €9 that’s got to be some bag.
At 52 bags a year, for 2 bags every fortnight I calculate that costs just about €78 per annum.
And the future? I suspect this will see a lot of that waste being dumped or thrown in with ordinary waste entirely undercutting the effort to encourage recycling.
Neat trick too to send out a letter dated November that arrives the day before the charges are due to come into effect. Breathtaking cynicism.
