Pearse McGeough: Littering is a Disgrace

Councillor Pearse McGeough called those who discarded mattresses along the N33 Ardee Link Road “a disgrace.”

Cllr McGeough who visited the site this morning said “someone just decided not to dispose of these mattresses responsibly. There are several of them so they had to be brought here by a van or lorry of some kind. If anyone has any knowledge on those who are responsible for this disgraceful dumping then please let Louth County Council know.”

Councillor McGeough also commended Louth County Council for their quick response in getting the mattresses removed. “It should not be up to Louth Council or indeed anyone else to clean up after someone else. I for one, am sick of paying to clean up someone else’s

filth. There seems to be an increase in the instances of dumping and that needs to stop.”

“When I arrived this morning the Council were here in the rain clearing the mattresses when they could have been doing something else. Well done to them.”

Fines for littering can range from €150 – €3,000
