Fly-tippers plague Coalisland lane ‘on a weekly basis’11th April 2012 | By: brendan64 | 1 Comment »
Waste collection teams are now being called out every week to clear up illegal dumping along a road in Coalisland – just yards from a council-owned waste facility.
Kettle Lane has been a fly-tipping hotspot in Dungannon borough for years.

On one occasion, the council was forced to remove 55 tyres illegally dumped along the lane.
And “no dumping” notices erected by the council have been quickly torn down by the offenders.
Robert McMinn, Dungannon council’s director of technical services, said clearing the site had now become a weekly task, putting an extra cost on ratepayers.
At a Dungannon council meeting held last month, councillors called for environmental improvements to be made in the area to try and prevent further dumping.
