Over 100 tonnes of waste has been removed from five scenic sites across Donegal.
As part of the 2018 Anti Dumping Initiative, €69,000 was secured by Donegal County Council to clean up sites routinely subject to illegal dumping.
€69,000 has been used by Donegal County Council to clean-up a number of sites across the county subjected to dumping as well as to support community clean-up efforts and for the purchase of additional surveillance equipment to be used in areas where persistent dumping is a problem.
Over 100 tonnes of waste was collected from five sites in the county including; Single Street, Bundoran, Altnashane and Corbish in Carndonagh and Brinalack and Bloody Foreland in Gweedore.
The Council says each clean-up required extensive planning and operation involving the hire of diggers, track and tipper machines and labour.
