‘100 bags of rubbish dumped’

More than 100 bags of rubbish were dumped at the back of a house at Galway Road, Roscommon town, last month, according to a complaint received by Roscommon County Council.

  The report, received on June 20th, was one of 65 environment complaints received by the local authority last month: 49 related to litter, seven to waste, five to air, three to water and one to noise.

  The water complaints related to a “tractor with a slurry tanker taking water from lake” in Boyle, “soiled water discharging to drain” in Strokestown, and “filling a turlough with boulders” in south Roscommon.

  Reports of dead animals being dumped were also received – on June 7th relating to Drumboylan bog, near Boyle, and on June 23rd relating to Cloonchambers Road, near Castlerea.

  It was also reported that dumping was prevalent at bottle banks at Tulsk, Ballybay, near Athlone, and Tesco in Roscommon town.

  The one report of noise pollution received last month related to “barking dogs” at Frenchpark.
