15 Mar Dublin City Council works on waste removal of dumped rubbish from Labre Park
Over half a million euro were spent on waste removal of dumped rubbish from Labre Park (Dublin 8). Much of the rubbish is being illegally dumped there by tradespeople and building contractors who don’t live in or near the site, reports Echo.ie.
Because of that, a lot of checkpoints were held recently on Kylemore Road at Labre Park, with commercial vehicles and suspicious cars checked to see if they had a licence to transport waste, as required by law.
Illegal rubbish dumping in Dublin 8
From time to time there are a number of vans spotted dumping rubbish from the back of their vehicles over the fence on Kylemore Road.
For the last five years it has been an issue that local residents were trying to fight. They have submitted 21 separate formal complaints to Dublin City Council regarding illegal rubbish dumping in this area of Inchicore in Dublin 8.
As a result in 2018, the Dublin city council spent €250,000 on waste disposal at Labre Park in Ballyfermot. The cost of waste removal in that part of Dublin 8 to the council increased significantly in the following two years. Local authorities recons, that the actions of a small few are having an enormously detrimental effect on the health and wellbeing of those who live on site.
