‘Put community before profit’ criminals told after latest sludge dumping

More cubes of toxic waste, the byproduct of fuel laundering which has sadly become all too familiar on our local roads over the last number of years.

This latest incident of dumping took place at Carrive in Forkhill.

It’s what greeted locals on Wednesday morning as they passed by.

Local Slieve Gullion Councillor Mickey Larkin (pictured) says people are sick, sore and tired of this type of activity and do not want it in their community.

“The dumping of this poison is not just an attack on the environment, it is an affront to the community,” said the Sinn Fein councillor.

“On a weekly basis this toxic sludge is abandoned on Irish roads and verges, left leaking into fields, causing pollution and health risks to the animals and residents.

“I would call on those engaged in this to desist and put the welfare of the community first before profit.”
