Derry City Council (DCC) has stated that it will examine evidence to bring those responsible for dumping rubbish outside council run civic amenity sites on Thursday.
All DCC civic amenity sites shut on Thursday as a result of an official strike over pay.
Despite clear signage outside each of the civic amenity sites stating why they were closed and also that it was illegal to dump waste outside of the compounds, members of the public turned up in their droves to throw their rubbish at the side of the road.
A DCC spokesperson told DerryJournal.com that the illegal dumping of waste outside of the amenity sites was regrettable and advised the public that it is illegal to dump or leave rubbish outside of an approved site.
“Council will be collating any evidence with a view to bringing forward penalties where possible.
“All Council services resumed as normal on Friday, July 11 following the one-day strike action on Thursday,” the spokesperson said.
