Commenting on the cleaning of the laneway at William Street ,Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue said
“The rubbish being illegally dumped in this laneway at William Street has been a blot on the landscape and an environmental hazard for many years now. The Council and other agencies have tried everything to find a resolution to this but to no avail.
“Anywhere that rubbish is dumped on this scale there is the possibility of having rats and mice as they’re going to be attracted to the food and rubbish lying around.
“Hopefully the installation of the camera will go some way to act as a deterrent to this dumping.
“Apart from these repeat hotspots our city centre is looking beautiful for Christmas and the New Year and the Council workers need to be commended for everything they’re doing to achieve that.”
