NO more public money should be spent cleaning up the aftermath of illegal dumping until CCTV is ready to be installed in affected areas, according to an Abbeyknockmoy councillor.

Cllr Pete Roche spoke at this week’s meeting of Tuam MDC to say he was recommending no further funds be allocated to clean up operations in the aftermath of repeated dumping in Cloonthue in recent weeks.

Galway County Council carried out a clean-up of the area in November, with funding allocated from the Department of the Environment as part of an ongoing campaign to tackle illegal dumping. However, Cllr Roche claimed that the area concerned was destroyed with rubbish within days of the operation being completed.
