WastePal customers are now customers of the Greenstar group after the two businesses joined forces last month.

In a statement Wastepal said it had joined the Greenstar Group and reasurred customers that there will be no reduction in services.

It read: 'The transfer of business from Wastepal Limited will not affect the service you receive and you will continue to experience the excellent level of service you are accustomed to. Wastepal employees, including senior management, are transferring to the Greenstar team and services will continue to be run locally from Greenstar's facilities in Wexford and Waterford.'

It went on to say that Greenstar is Ireland's leading provider of integrated waste management solutions serving over 80,000 domestic customers, nationwide employing 50 people locally.

Customers were also told that there will no changes to prices for the moment, however the collection day for customers has changed. 'Following the integration of Wastepal customers into the Greenstar group and to maintain the highest standard of service, we are making improvements to the collection routes in your area. As a result of these route changes your collection day will change. We are pleased to tell you there will be no change to your current price agreement with Wastepal at this time.'

Wastepal was established in April by 2007 by Patrick Kinsella at the age of 19 making him one of the world's youngest waste management's CEO. The service initially serviced households in Wexford but expanded into Waterford city and South Kilkenny in 2010 and to South Wicklow and Carlow in 2013.
