Sinn Féin Environmental spokesperson Councillor Sharon Duddy has appealed to householders in the TRIAX area which takes in the Bogside, Brandywell , Bishop Street, Creggan and Fountain areas to use the bulky lift that has been organised by TRIAX in conjunction the Council over the next two weeks.
Councillor Duddy said “One of the biggest ongoing issues affecting areas across the city with mews lanes is the illegal dumping of rubbish. This dumping is costing the council thousands of pounds in cleans up and is an environmental hazard. It is also terrible when residents have invested a lot in their homes and someone decides its ok to dump a load of rubbish at their back gate in the middle of the night.
“The rubbish being illegally dumped in these locations is nothing but a blot on the landscape and an environmental hazard. There is absolutely no excuse for this to be occurring.
“Over the next two weeks a major bulky lift scheme is underway throughout the TRIAX area .Most homes will have received a leaflet telling them of the date and time of the collection and what items can be left out. This is a free service.
