What If You Could Organise Your Waste Online In Just 60 Seconds? Well now you can! Kollect, a company specialising in waste collection has developed an online booking engine where customers can order their bin collection at a time that suits them. This is a pay-as-you-go, on demand system meaning that there are no contracts or yearly fees and that you control bin day! Kollect have just received a High Potential Start-up Award from Enterprise Ireland ensuring that they can develop and expand their booking engine services.
Here at Kollect we were fed up of seeing people in smaller households, students, singles or anyone that doesn't produce much waste having to pay the same fees as households that do generate a lot of rubbish. With Kollect smaller households can save up to 40% annually because we don't charge monthly, it is a pay per use system. All customers have to do is sign up with us by going to kollect.ie, type in your address, choose which bins you want collected and pay online, then just sit back and relax while we organise the rest. Kollect has offered bin collection in Waterford since late 2015. In November 2016 Kollect launched their innovative service for Cork Bin Collection too.
John Hegarty, one of the founders of Kollect explains “We are targeting the smaller households but there is an obvious niche for larger families who produce excess rubbish after birthday parties, around Christmas or even if they miss their own bin collection. Kollect.ie fills a gap for everyone and it is very cost effective.
Due to increased popularity and customer requests, we have set up a skip hire service that operates using the same online system and this service is available throughout Ireland. Providing a range of different skips to suit your needs and at the most competitive rates, all you have to do is go to the skip hire section of kollect.ie, select your location from the dropdown menu, select the skip you require and then make your payment. Kollect again utilises their smart booking engine to find the best value skip and deliver it right to your door.
