Through a comprehensive programme of public awareness campaigns, education programmes, active enforcement and the use of CCTV technology, the Environment Section continues to tackle the blight of illegal dumping in Co. Laois.
The free phone confidential litter hotline (1800 32 32 30) is critical to the enforcement efforts and members of the public are encouraged to report any breaches of Litter legislation.
In particular, if members of the public are aware of any unauthorised waste collectors active in their area it is very important that they make contact with the Environment Section who will follow up with enforcement.
During late August / early September, Laois County Council Litter Wardens are participating in an anti dumping initiative in towns and villages around the county. A mobile truck displaying the attached advertisement below is visiting towns and locations and meeting with Tidy Towns groups to discuss litter issues in their area. Bogus Waste Collectors
