Carrigtwohill Tidy Towns Vigilance is Needed to Stop Litter Louts

By Seamus Whelehan


Carrigtwohill Tidy Towns have called on the public to be extra vigilant after brazen Fly-tippers dumped a pile of household rubbish close to the village.
The mound containing recycling, food and general household waste was disposed of close to the slip road to Carrigtwohill near Barryscourt.
Eileen Stoap from the Carrigtwohill Tidy Towns group said they are continuously removing rubbish from the approach roads to the village.
However last weekend’s find was particularly bad for the Tidy Towns group.
“You will always get litter there but this was deliberate, a lot of it was recyclable as well as food waste. It was all compartmentalised inside the bag, before crows pecked it apart and spread it across the road.”
“There’s no excuse for it “, Mrs Stoap told the East Cork Journal.
The Carrigtwohill Tidy Towns secretary said it’s very easy for someone to dump in the area as you have a clear view in front and behind.
“You can back in there and watch for your chance. It’s quite open but there is also an element of secrecy. You would be gone before anyone would notice.”
Cork County council are currently investigating the find which is hoped to lead to a prosecution.
Anyone wishing to make a general complaint regarding illegally dumped litter can contact the Anti-Litter unit on 021-4285417.
If you are aware of who is dumping illegally you can contact the council in writing describing, where, when, who and what has been dumped to Anti-Litter Unit Cork County Council Inniscarra Co Cork.
