Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has slammed that responsible for illegal dumping in laneways off Park Avenue which have been cleaned up over the last few weeks.
Councillor Cooper said “It’s hard to believe that these laneways just off Park Avenue have been cleaned up in the last few weeks and we now have to deal with this mess again.
A lot of time and effort has gone into the cleanup scheme with the help of Teamworks. Some of the laneways were in a very bad state with overgrown weeds and piles of rubbish.
I have been in touch with the Council to visit these laneways and carry out an inspection.
Sadly there seems to be a very small element that has no regard for the area and whilst a free bulky lift is available they simple just dump stuff in the back lanes as if it is someone else’s fault. There is no excuse for this at all.
I am once again making an appeal for a bit of common sense around this issue.
