The City Bin Co has ambitious growth plans for the future and prides itself on its customer-centric business model. The averda deal is a welcome signal of international confidence in our model and an excellent opportunity to drive international best practice in the European waste sector. ”
Minister for the Environment, Community, and Local Government, Phil Hogan voiced his approval of the recent development saying: “In launching the Government's new waste policy last July, I was ensuring that the industry could make investment decisions with policy certainty. Therefore, in that context, it is very encouraging to see a home grown company attracting international investment to Ireland. The City Bin Co is fast becoming a market leader for customer service in its sector and the creation of 35 jobs is great news for Dublin and Galway.”
