Kilcarra and Glenart become targets for illegal dumping

Arklow Councillor Mary McDonald has hit out at indiscriminate dumpers – who are abandoning their household rubbish, furniture and electrical appliances around the outskirts of Arklow.

Last weekend over a tonne of rubbish was dumped on the road in Kilcarra.

Kilcarra and Glenart have become the main targets for illegal dumping in recent times.

Councillor McDonald has called on the public to notify herself the gardai or the county council in the strictest confidence if the have any knowledge of recent incidents of dumping.

It is understood an environmental officer visited the site on Monday and has recovered evidence which should lead to a conviction.

Anyone who is paying to dispose of household waste should make sure the vendor has a waste permit.
