Coun­cil in­ves­ti­gate town cen­tre tip

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By SI­MON BROUDER

KERRY County Coun­cil is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the dump­ing of a huge amount of com­mer­cial waste in a small yard off a laneway in Tralee town cen­tre.

In re­cent weeks sev­eral busi­nesses in the im­me­di­ate area have com­plained about on­go­ing dump­ing in the small fenced yard where a pile of stink­ing rub­bish – now sev­eral feet deep – has been de­posited.

The trash – which has been fes­ter­ing in the re­cent heat­wave – in­cludes crates of bot­tles, boxes and what ap­pears to be a large amount of kitchen-re­lated rub­bish.

When The Ker­ry­man went to the site – which is close to sev­eral busy restau­rants – a num­ber of rats could be clearly seen scur­ry­ing around amid the garbage.

Kerry County Coun­cil said they are aware of the mat­ter and are cur­rently in dis­cus­sions with the pro­pri­etors of the site with a view to re­solv­ing the mat­ter as soon as pos­si­ble.

The scene at the lo­ca­tion in Tralee town cen­tre last Thurs­day.
