“It’s A Dirty Business” Waste Management Consultant Defends Bin Charges
A DUBLIN based waste management company has defended a decision to scrap flat fee bin charges in a government shake-up of the waste charging regime, stating “it’s a dirty business”.
Anthony John Soprano confirmed to WWN that his company, Barone Sanitation, will now charge on the basis of how many times the bin is lifted or what weight it is, and said customers should expect to be charged more money per kilo from the 1st of July, 2017.
“Sure, some poor schmucks who don’t bother to recycle will get bigga charges,” the waste management consultant explains, “and sure they’re gonna kick up a fuss about the new rules, but if you can quote the rules, then you can obey them. If you’re stupid enough to keep putting shit into your black bins, then don’t come crying to me with your stupid feelings – I wipe my ass with your feelings”.
The new system is aimed at helping reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and to divert more towards recycling. The pay-by-weight legislation was due to come in last year. However, fears that some companies like Mr. Soprano’s, would impose steep increases in standing charges led to a freeze on bin charges for all customers for 12 months. That freeze comes to an end on July 1st, 2017 with unknown consequences due to a lack of legislation.
“It’s a dirty business,” defended the 57-year-old against the public backlash to the new system, while puffing on a Cuban cigar, “people should lay off the government too. They have got no fucking idea what it’s like to be Number One. Every decision you make affects every facet of every other fucking thing. Besides, people who don’t recycle deserve two behind the ear”.
