Bin waivers

The Minister for the Environment, Community & Local Government, Phil Hogan, told Robert Dowds (Lab, Dublin MW) that he had concluded in September 2011 a consultation on franchise-bidding for local authority waste collection (Dail Eireann, Debates, 14th June 2012, 735-6).   There had been a broad response but no consensus.  He would finalize proposals in the coming weeks and the government would take account of all issues, including waivers.
