Waste story… October 26, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
A small snippet of a story in the SBP at the weekend noted that:
The government is under intense pressure… to establish a full-scale inquiry into alleged anti-competitive practices in the waste management sector, after fresh whistleblower claims were passed to senior minsters and the competition watchdog.
It is understood that the claims were passed to FF housing, planning and local government TD Barry Cowen..
And Cowen notes that those who make the claims are willing to step forward.
How about this for a couple of sentences?
The allegations relate to barriers to entry, market concentration and price collusion. There is no suggestions of wrong doing or illegal behaviour on behalf of any operator in the waste collection industry.
It is, many of us I suspect feel, long past time that a cold eye was cast on this particular area.
