East Londonderry MLA Maurice Bradley is asking the public to take a ‘common sense approach’ to waste, following a number of reports of fly-tipping in the area.

Bradley was speaking on Friday morning after he had been contacted by residents in the Harpur’s Hill area who have reported fly-tipping and the presence of rats in the area.

“There is no indication that the sightings of rats is related to any fly-tipping, however, I would encourage residents to think before they discard waste illegally. I have been speaking with Council and NIHE on this matter.

“It is difficult, we are all at home, and there is more waste being accumulated, but if your bin is full, store your rubbish in sealed bags until you can make room for it in your bin, and make a bigger effort to recycle what you can into your blue bin.
“I understand that another Council has taken the decision to open their civic amenity sites, but given the social distancing guidelines currently in place and the call for essential travel only, it is vital that the safety of the public and indeed Council staff is paramount.

“This is a delicate issue, but I feel that if we all make a bigger effort then the issue could be easily resolved,” said Bradley.
