Dublin 8 resident loses the rag with litter dumping neighbours

They’ve had enough.

AN ANGRY RESIDENT in the Dublin 8 area has taken matters into their own hands after repeated dumping on Long Lane.

Placing a sign sure to be seen by the offenders is one way to attempt to tackle the problem.

It reads:

Great work! Keep it up!
To the people who keep DUMPING their rubbish here, well done, you are doing us all PROUD.
You are a credit to yourselves and our beautiful city.

Last year this note was placed above a regular dumping area in Synge Street, also in Dublin 8.

DailyEdge.ie has contact Dublin City Council for comment on illegal dumping in the Dublin 8/south inner city area.

Earlier this month the Council said that it has been “working on a new initiative to combat serious dumping/litter issues in the North Inner City” and that that work had been reflected in noted improvements in a recent Irish Businesses Against Litter report, although the area remained “seriously littered”.

Dublin city as a whole was deemed to be “moderately littered” in the 2014 final report.

The council encourages residents to report incidents of littering by post, telephone or email.
