AES, Bord na Móna’s resource recovery business, and Ireland’s leading provider of waste bin collection and recycling services, has announced a new waste collection system for customers in North Tipperary that promises to provide customers with an even more convenient and environmentally responsible service.
From September 16, AES will introduce a fleet of split body trucks, which will enable dual collection. The development will see a reduction in the frequency of collections, as they now have the ability to collect two types of waste bins all at once. This will replace the long-standing weekly collections as the dual collection will be on a fortnightly basis.
The development will mean an improved service for over 7,000 homes in North Tipperary as well as fewer AES trucks on the road, helping to create a safer environment.
Liz Adair, general manager, AES Nenagh, said: “At AES we are committed to delivering the very best in innovative and environmentally friendly waste management solutions to our customers. We are delighted to announce this fantastic new development, which will improve our service to over 7,000 homes across North Tipperary.
“In a further display of our commitment to our customers, we have also extended the opening hours at our Nenagh depot, now opening on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.”
AES’s commitment to divert waste from landfill has been underpinned by its significant €6m investment in an innovative organic and food waste composting plant in Drehid, North Kildare. AES was purchased by the Bord na Móna group in 2007.
