Galway County Council has responded to widespread illegal dumping and littering in the county by allocating more resources to tackle the issue.
Cllr Evelyn Parsons said that two additional litter enforcement officers are being resourced and a new geo mapping initiative will be be used to combat illegal dumping.
The councillor said that this will be “another huge step forward in identifying non-compliant individuals in this war on waste.”
“People need to urgently take personal responsibility for how their rubbish gets managed,” said Cllr Parsons.
“The Bills office are progressing appropriate legislation for CCTV use which will be another important tool to help identify and prosecute offenders.”
