Bank Holiday Collections: Please note that collections on a bank holiday take place as scheduled on your collection calendar. If your bins are to be collected on the Monday please leave them out the night before collection as usual. 

Replacement bin policy: Please note that if a replacement bin is required there is a replacement charge of €40 per bin. The bins are the responsibility of the customer so therefore it is up to the customer to look after them responsibly and keep them in a safe place. 

At Panda, composting is an integral part of our waste management. Panda is committed to working alongside the new (Household Food Waste and Bio Waste) Regulations 2013 (S.I. No. 71 of 2013) which have come into effect.

Under this regulation householders should be aware of their legal obligation to separate all food & garden waste and ensure that it is not placed in the general waste bin.

This regulation requires the roll out of brown bins for agglomerations of 25,000 or more from the 1st July 2013.

The regulation hopes to reduce the amount of food and bio waste that is currently sent to landfill by giving customer a bi-weekly collection of the brown bin.

We will shortly be introducing our own branded compostable bags and when that happens we will be informing all our customers how and where to get them.Panda will accept any compostable/ bio-degradable bags in the brown bin but plastic bags are unacceptable. Any brown bins presented for collection with plastic bags will be rejected.  Compostable/bio-degradable bags are available in most supermarkets. The alternative to compostable/bio-degradable bags is to wrap the food waste in newspaper.
