JCB comes in to clean up ‘Rubbish Mountain’
THE ‘Rubbish Mountain’ as it has been fondly referred to, at Ravenswell Road, has been cleared thanks to an eight-tonne JCB digger.
Over the past couple of weeks Bray Coastcare Group have been liaising with the Town Council in order to get the end of Ravenswell Road, which is situated near the harbour, cleaned up.
Last Monday, Bray Town Council arranged for a local contractor to clean up the ‘mountain’ of beer cans and other disgusting rubbish.
The contractor used an eight-tonne JCB digger and filled three of the largest skips possible.
By 2.30 p.m. the job was done with a whopping 40 to 45 tonnes of rubbish been taken away by skip.
This included all sorts of rubbish but mostly beer cans and bottles.
Now that this area has been cleaned Bray Coastcare are urging people not to just discard their rubbish and to ensure they put it in the bin.
‘On behalf of Bray Coastcare Group I would like to thank Bray Town Council especially Paul Wogan and Liam Bourke for enabling this much needed clean up.
Without our ongoing, successful, working relationship this kind of much needed work for Bray would not be possible,’ said Seamus Connor of Bray Coastcare.
