On-the-spot fines (see previous paragraph) will be issued to anyone identified leaving items behind at any of the council's bring banks. When you have placed all your recyclable items into the relevant containers, please take any boxes/bags used to bring items to the bring banks away with you. If the banks are full, all items, including boxes/bags used to bring the items to the bring banks, must be taken away. Where a dumping incident is deemed particularly serious, a direct prosecution may be taken by the council without issuing an on-the-spot fine.
To combat the problem of dumping at bring-banks, the Council installs CCTV at various times throughout the year. This has proved very successful in identifying litter offenders.
Appealing a Litter Fine:
If you feel that your fine was unfair or mistaken, you can lodge an appeal on the attached appeal form. Appeals should be lodged within 21 days of the date of the fine, and may be submitted by email to email@example.com or by post to the Litter Management Section, County Hall, Marine Road, Dún Laoghaire. A decision will be notified to you within 21 days of receipt of the appeal.
