Doolan to support Ringsend Bin Charge Protest

13 January, 2005

Sinn Féin Representative for Dublin South East Councillor Daithí Doolan will be supporting tomorrow morning's Anti Bin Charges Protest, "to ensure that all rubbish is collected here in Ringsend."

Cllr. Doolan, speaking in Ringsend today said:

"The City Council Management continues in their attempt to bully us into submitting to their bin charges. This week, as part of their tactics, they have implemented a disgraceful policy of non collection of household waste that do not have pre paid tags attached. This has created a situation where rubbish is piling up on Dublin's streets.

"Here in Ringsend, we have decided to make a stand and tomorrow, with my full support, residents will hold a protest at 8am on South Lotts Road. The protest is being held to ensure that all rubbish will be collected and to avoid a health and safety crisis in our communities."

In conclusion Cllr. Doolan called on, "City Council Management to abandon this disgraceful policy of leaving rubbish pile up in an attempt to force people into paying this double tax. The charges have proven to be unjust and unworkable." ENDS

The protest will take place tomorrow, Friday 14th, 8am, Shelbourne Dog Track, South Lotts Road, Ringsend.
