Cork City Council is to withdraw from the provision of waste collection services in the city from August 15th next and is transferring its operations to Country Clean Recycling Ltd. who will provide the service to existing Council customers.
The decision was announced at a meeting of Cork City Council held on Monday 27th June by City Manager, Tim Lucey, and follows a comprehensive review of all the options open to the Council with regard to the service.
There will be no immediate change to existing collection methods and existing waivers will be honoured until April 15th 2013.
An Information Line Freefone No. 1800 283 034 will operate from 10.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. Monday to Friday, until Friday July 8th, to answer customer queries.
Information sheets will be distributed to all customers by Cork City Council and the new service provider will issue full information packs in the coming weeks to all existing Cork City Council Customers.
