Your rent does not include utility costs such as waste disposal, heating, phone or electricity. Each landlord will have his or her own mechanism for collecting charges. Many will simply put your name on the relevant bill, which you are then obliged to pay. Usually the utility company will only accept one name on a bill, so it is important to decide as a group how best to manage this.

Waste disposal is expensive in Ireland. You may purchase waste disposal bags from a waste-provider company.
