Those responsible for dumping tyres close to the local reservoir at Seagahan Dam have been roundly condemned.
Dozens of tyres have been casually discarded along the roadside in an area popular with locals.
And there have been appeals for anyone who can help identify the culprits to bring what information they may have to the relevant department of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council.
SDLP Cusher representative Emmajayne McKernan has condemned the illegal dumping and reported it to council.
She said: “This is an environmental crime and those who dumped the tyres have shown little regard for the local area or its people who will have to meet the costs of the removal and disposal of this waste as ratepayers.
“Seagahan Dam has become an increasingly popular place for people who walk, fish and even those interested in bird watching after £20,000 was invested in a Public Access and Recreation Project back in 2018.
“It is so disheartening that those responsible do not appreciate what has been achieved here.
“The incident has been reported to the council who will manage the removal of the tyres. I would urge anyone with information in relation to this crime to please come forward and I would appeal to people to dispose of waste in a responsible way.”
