Mac Lochlainn to proceed with Seanad bin charges motion

Padraig MacLochlainn who narrowly lost out on a seat

A Donegal Senator is pressing ahead with a motion to scrap the controversial bin charges despite the Government considering capping them temporarily as an emergency measure.

The new pay by weight charges are due to come into effect on July 1st and some companies have told customers they'll be increasing prices as a result.

The Government's being urged to put a regulator in charge of waste collection fees.
