Sinn Féin Councillor Tina Burke has slammed those responsible for illegal dumping on the Glassagh Road at the back of Creggan.
She said “I was contacted by residents who were furious at the amount of rubbish that has been dumped on the Glassagh Road in recent days.
“Anyone who goes to the area will be shocked to see the amount of stuff dumped at the side of the road. And then someone has gone and set it on fire.
“This rubbish must have been transported to the area as it included a fridge freezer.
“I would appeal to people to desist from this practice immediately and have a bit of respect for the local community and the environment particularly during this coronavirus pandemic.
“Creggan is not a dumping ground and this type of behaviour will not be tolerated”.
