Bonfire ma­te­ri­als be­ing col­lected

Bray People - - NEWS -

AS bonfire sea­son ap­proaches, young res­i­dents of some es­tates have al­ready started gath­er­ing ma­te­ri­als.

Cllr Joe Be­han raised the is­sue last week at Bray Mun­ci­pal District.

He said that an ef­fec­tive method to en­sure lo­cal house­hold­ers don’t con­trib­ute to the prob­lem is to write to them with a warn­ing. He said that if they are caught hand­ing out refuse such as old fur­ni­ture, that’s break­ing the law and sub­ject to be­ing fined.

‘Many house­hold­ers may not be aware that they are break­ing the law if they give out stuff for bon­fires,’ said Cllr Be­han. ‘ The buildup has al­ready started and it needs to be dealt with,’ said Cllr Be­han. ‘We say ev­ery year we’re not go­ing to do it but in­evitably the coun­cil ends up hav­ing to sort it out.’
