As­bestos dumped on Bal­tray road

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

DUMPERS have dis­carded sheets of as­bestos at a bird sanc­tu­ary on the Bal­tray Road.

Cllr Tommy Byrne has con­tacted Louth CC, ask­ing for it to be re­moved and con­demn­ing the ac­tions.

‘There is se­ri­ous dump­ing of as­bestos on the Bal­tray Road, each side of the bird sanc­tu­ary ap­prox­i­mately 500 yards south of the vil­lage it­self. The as­bestos is dumped in in­di­vid­ual sheets to avoid de­tec­tion and for a high tide to take it away. This is the sec­ond time since 2016 that I re­ported il­le­gal dump­ing of as­bestos, the other in­ci­dent oc­cur­ring on the nearby Beaulieu Road.’

He says the fines are not strong enough to de­ter the cul­prits.
