The Environment Section in Fingal County Council are currently involved in a number of anti-dumping campaigns to help raise awareness in relation to illegal dumping and illegal waste collectors (“Man in a Van”) which is a National Priority for 2019 under the Anti-Dumping initiative. There is an anti-dumping poster that is being advertised at bus shelters throughout Fingal and on Social Media as well as advertising sites such as Donedeal and Adverts.ie. Illegal waste collectors use social media and advertising sites to offer waste removal services with householders tempted by a cheap offer to dispose of waste which can then end up being dumped causing environmental pollution. The poster campaign targets the same sites and highlights the issue of illegal waste collectors and the risk to householders of a criminal conviction and court fine up to €5,000 if your waste is found dumped by the side of a road or in the countryside. Fingal County Council has also produced a video clip highlighting the issue and this will run in three different cinemas within Fingal from now until Christmas.
