795 Public Litter Bins Must Double To Tackle Increase In Litter Plight

Dublin Airport Litter

Dublin FF Cllr Gilligan is calling for a double the number of litter bins in South Dublin Co Co. SDCC must encourage residents to do the right thing. An insufficient number of litter bins will encourage bad litter behaviour. The stats below outline the number of bins in SDCC: Lucan 131 litter bins, Clondalkin 113 bins, Tallaght 208 bins, Rathfarnham  119 bins and Templeogue / Terenure 104 bins. The total of the above is 675 litter bins. In addition to this there are 120 litter bins in parks around the County.”

“Tidy Towns groups are continually requesting more bins in the area and I think this would go a long way to tackling the issue. Dublin Bus must also commit to increase the number of litter bins at their stops as well as extra bins on the buses.”
