Louts who dump refuse slammed

COUNCILLOR Paul Gogarty has slammed “a small minority” who dump domestic refuse along roadways and hedges in Lucan.

Cllr Gogarty said that the great work of many residents and volunteers is being hampered by this illegal dumping.

He told The Echo: “I have raised this with the Council and am looking at best practice elsewhere to deal with the problem beyond what I have already called for (increased fines, money-back bottles and cans).

"In the meantime, all offenders need to be reported and witness statements made if necessary.”

Cllr Gogarty said that while some have genuine financial issues, there are other solutions.

He added: “We can have no sympathy for the louts who dump and litter because they can.”
