Kerry Sinn Féin members will hold a short protest outside County Buildings at Rathass in Tralee on this Wednesday, July 5th at 1:15pm.
Councillor Toireasa Ferris has invited members of the public to attend:
Sinn Féin Motion
“We are holding this protest tomorrow to highlight once again all that is wrong with waste collection in this country and in support of the Sinn Féin motion in the Dáil which seeks to block the implementation of the new charging regime.
“The town councils and Kerry County Council had very progressive waiver schemes which protected elderly and low income families.
Local Authority Control
“Our motion calls for a study of the feasibility of the remunicipalisation of waste services. We want to see if it is possible to bring waste services back under local authority control.
“At the time that bin services were privatised by Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin warned that price increases would result and it would be the least well off that would be hardest hit.
“Unfortunately we were ignored and our concerns are now being borne out,” Ms. Ferris said in conclusion.
