Sinn Féin Councillors Anger at Fly Tipping on the Aghacommon Embankment

Published: 10 December, 2017

Sinn Fein Cllr. Fergal Lennon, has expressed anger at fly tipping on the Aghacommon Embankment.

Cllr. Lennon said:

"Those involved could easily have taken the item to the local recycling centre.

"Fly tipping has a negative impact on the environment, is an eyesore and impacts on local health and safety.

"In addition fly tipping places an additional financial burden on local rate payers.

"There are numerous council facilities across the Borough where waste can be disposed of in a safe and controlled manner. Such instances of fly tipping are completely unacceptable and need to be challenged. Those engaged in this behaviour should desist and I would encourage local residents to report any sightings to ensure further incidents are minimised. Residents can report online via the council website or by calling: 028 3833 9031. Anyone caught will face a hefty fine."
