Anger at 'Fly-tipping' at Strabane Cemetery
Published: 2 January, 2012
Strabane Sinn Féin Councillor Jay Mc Cauley has described a major incident of Fly
tipping at Strabane Cemetery over Christmas as a totally insensitive act which
distressed and angered people visiting the graves of loved ones.
After liasing with the Technical Services Department of Strabane District Council
Councillor Mc Cauley ensured that the rubbish was cleared but he hit out at who-ever
was responsible saying:
"Given the quantity and nature of the rubbish dumped at the graveyard, it could only
have been transported there by a vehicle. People visiting the graves of loved ones
were distressed and angered that anyone could have been so insensitive and
disrespectful to do such a thing.
"Given that the rubbish was transported and dumped there on the 28th December, a
day that the Council dump itself was open, it makes matters even worse.
"I would like to applaud the actions of Council Technical Services staff who ensured,
upon being contacted, that the rubbish was promptly cleared away thus avoiding it
being dispersed onto graves throughout the cemetery. ENDS
