A grave sit­u­a­tion has reared its head in Ark­low with re­gard to the dis­posal of items not nor­mally clas­si­fied as weekly do­mes­tic refuse.

With the coun­cil ban on col­lec­tion of non-do­mes­tic refuse, some strange items have started ap­pear­ing in the refuse skip in the lo­cal ceme­tery.

At a coun­cil meet­ing last week, Cllr Tom Clandil­lon re­vealed that amongst the items in the skip were a wash­ing ma­chine and a cooker.

He said the sit­u­a­tion will worsen be­cause of the im­po­si­tion of the ban on non-do­mes­tic rub­bish col­lec­tions by the coun­cil.

He was hor­ri­fied at see­ing a wash­ing ma­chine and a cooker in the grave­yard skip.

‘I am ap­peal­ing to the peo­ple re­spon­si­ble for this dump­ing to stop it,’ he said.

In an at­tempt to put a stop to this type of dump­ing, Cllr Clandil­lon has asked town hall of­fi­cials to place signs on all skips around town in­clud­ing the one in the ceme­tery.
