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.

‘Rub­bish Moun­tain’ be­fore the clean-up be­gan.
