Waste firm can expand its service to city


The Irish Times has reported that Dublin City Council has failed to obtain a High Court injunction to prevent a private waste company from expanding into its administrative area.

The council had sought the injunction to apply until the outcome of legal proceedings by Panda Waste Services challenging the council's proposed new waste collection regime.

However, Mr Justice Liam McKechnie ruled that the council had failed to establish sufficient grounds for the granting of an injunction to prevent Nurendale Ltd - trading as Panda Waste Services, Rathdrinagh, Beauparc Business Park, Navan, Co Meath - from expanding its household collection service into the city area.

The company provides the service to 28,000 homes in Dún Laoghaire and to about 1,000 each in Fingal and south Dublin.
