Irish Independent says Donegal bin charges are the highest in the country

Wheelie bins
It's emerged that Donegal has the highest average bin charges in the country.

The revelation comes amid report that charges could be rise by up to 100 Euro a year as a result of plans to make households pay for their rubbish by weight.

The Irish Independent claims the increases will accompany new rules next year which will ban flat-fees to incentivise recycling.

Costs vary greatly throughout the country - Galway has the cheapest average bills at 204 Euros - while Donegal has the highest at an average of 346 Euro.

Michelle Murphy from Social Justice Ireland isn't convinced the new system will help the environment.........
