City Bin Co, more commonly known as City Bin, are a waste collection and recycling company covering the areas of Galway and Dublin. Since their founding in 1997, they have acquired over 50,000 customers and proven their reliability in being given several awards and ranking at a respectable 3.6-star rating on Google.

Let's take a look at what makes them such a popular choice.

What are my City Bin Prices and Options?

Similarly to switching your energy provider, it is well worth shopping around and looking into which providers can offer you a package that best suits your needs, along with your budget. This company has four operational areas: Dublin City, South Dublin County, Fingal County and Galway City. As City Bin prices in Galway are the only ones with separate rates, let's look at their current plan details first.

What Other Services do City Bin Provide?

Along with the standard refuse collection and waste processing, City Bin also offers a small range of skip hire options starting from mini skips for modest clear-outs at €130, to large skips designed to have the capacity to handle almost any need.

If you need more of a one-off collection rather than consistent waste disposal, City Bin also provides collection services to dispose of those bulkier items such as sofa disposal or furniture clearouts. Available collection vehicles start at a modest capacity of 2.5 cubic yards and increase to a maximum of 20 cubic yards.

Projects and Awards

As with many companies, City Bin tries to give back to the community where possible. Starting in 2016, City Bins GivDay has to date donated over €70,000 to thirty-seven charities such as the Irish Cancer Society, Crumlin Children's Hospital and many more. This unique scheme allows each employee to choose a company that they personally wish to donate to using company funds every week.

City Bin has been a Deloitte's Best Managed Company for four consecutive years, in addition to being placed on the Index of Excellence by Excellence Ireland. Two reassuring accolades for those who are considering switching their waste removal provider or have recently moved home.

What Other Methods do I have to Manage my City Bin Account?

If you prefer not to contact customer services to manage your account, then usually creating an online account would be the best way forwards. Unfortunately, City Bin appears to be somewhat lacking in this department, encouraging customers to make contact through one of the primary communication channels above.

Additionally, City Bin has not yet developed an app for use on mobiles or tablets. A combination of these points leaves customers relying on more traditional methods of account management.

That being said, the City Bin website is very easy to use, and contains a wealth of information within their FAQ and blog sections, enabling customers to research their concerns or interest in-depth before reaching out to their provider. City Bin also offers a free SMS reminder service for bin collections, making sure that their clients receive advanced weekly notifications of their collection days.

Does City Bin offer their Services to the Commercial Sector?

Yes! City Bin works with a broad range of commercial sectors, from hospitality and retail to healthcare, manufacturing and many in-between. As with most providers, City Bin encourages potential clients to make contact with them to discuss their specific needs in order that they can provide a service and quote to fit their business needs, rather than publish pricing on their website. An example of some of the services that they offer include:

  • Hazardous waste handling
  • Industrial waste segregation
  • Confidential shredding
  • Monthly account and recycling reports
  • Pay-by-weight, lift & fixed plan options

Interestingly, for businesses that are interested in going greener or reducing their financial expenditure, City Bin also offers a program called The Zero Project. This entails City Bin analysing the general waste management of a company, and offering training and advice on how to improve their refuse handling practice, economise, and improve their standards. This aims to reduce waste expenditure by up to 40% annually… well worth considering
