Anger at dump­ing shame at the Wa­tery Hill steps

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS - By HU­BERT MUR­PHY

AN­GRY lo­cal res­i­dents have hit out at those dump­ing rub­bish at the Wa­tery Hill steps.

Over the hol­i­day pe­riod, bags of rub­bish - some of it house­hold waste - was dumped just off the steps.

But as well as rub­bish, peo­ple have been shocked to see shop­ping trol­leys, a bi­cy­cle, a child’s buggy, an old suit­case and chil­dren’s toys.

It is be­lieved the site has been in­ves­ti­gated by the coun­cil lit­ter war­den in a bid to find those re­spon­si­ble.

Mayor Frank God­frey says he re­ceived a num­ber of calls from lo­cal res­i­dents, who are sick of their area be­ing used as a dump­ing ground.

‘I went along to see for my­self and it is a dis­grace. There is ev­ery­thing there.

‘At a time when we want the town to look its best, this hap­pens.

‘Peo­ple must be made aware if they are found dump­ing, there are hefty fines and I’m sure the coun­cil will take ac­tion against those in­volved in this,’ he stated.

He says the coun­cil’s en­vi­ron­men­tal depart­ment have been look­ing into the in­ci­dent.
