Illegal Dumping from cliff in UNESCO Global Geopark

Waterford City and County council were recently made aware of this disgraceful case of illegal dumping in the UNESCO Copper Coast Geopark.

This is also located is the Mid Waterford Coast Special Protection Area for birds. We believe that this dumping has come from an unauthorised ‘Man in the Van’ type operator who collects rubbish from people and then dumps it indiscriminately.

In that case, not only can this illegal waste collector be prosecuted but the person who gave them their waste can also face fines of up to €5,000.

If you suspect you may have unintentionally availed of the services of an unauthorised collector, contact the environment section of the council on 0761 10 20 20 or by contact@waterfordcouncil.ie, in case your waste is also found dumped like this.
