Coun­cil bids to tackle lit­ter louts

Irish Examiner - County - - News -

Lit­ter louts will cer­tainly not be smil­ing if they find them­selves caught on cam­era.

Cork County Coun­cil has is­sued a warn­ing to of­fend­ers who per­sist in dump­ing rub­bish in a semi-ru­ral area on the north-east out­skirts of the city. Fly-tipping has be­come a ma­jor prob­lem in parts of Rath­cooney, Glan­mire, in re­cent years and it’s of ma­jor con­cern to res­i­dents. Coun­cil­lor Padraig O’Sul­li­van high­lighted the prob­lem at a re­cent meet­ing of the Cobh/Glan­mire mu­nic­i­pal district coun­cil which will re­quest the county coun­cil’s en­vi­ron­ment direc­torate to in­stall covert cam­eras in the area to catch those re­spon­si­ble. Mr O’Sul­li­van claimed “per­sis­tent lit­ter­ing is oc­cur­ring every day in this part of the mu­nic­i­pal district”.
