Fuel waste dumped in Forkhill

Forkhill fuel dumping

Two containers full of fuel waste have been dumped on the Captains Road, Forkhill, in south Armagh.

Sinn Féin councillor Mickey Larkin (pictured) has criticised those responsible.

Cllr Larkin said: “This container, as the picture shows, has been discarded upside down at the entrance to a field.  The contents has spilled into the adjoining farmland which is an environmental and pollution concern.

“People in south Armagh are sick of the scourge of dumping and I call on those responsible to stop this practise.  I have contacted Newry and Mourne Council’s Environmental Health Department to arrange the removal of this waste.”
