litter patrols are very visible & striking with all the volunteers
luminous yellow vests we had purchased.
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council are very supportive by providing
bags, litter pickers, gloves, and special bags for dog excrement.
They also pick up the bags from various nominated locations after picking.
Big Belly Rubbish Bins recently installed by DLRCC, appeared to have
made a difference around the town. As they are a smart bin, each bin
contacts the department to indicate that it needs emptying, saving a
lot of manpower & fuel, by not emptying the old ones on a daily
bases ( even if they were not full ), also saving the environment by
less fuel & associated pollution.
DTT proposed these to DLRCC about 6 - years ago,
but at the time they did not see the financial benefits for them
general Dalkey is improving regarding litter, if a slowly at times.
major problem we have is fishermen leaving tangled line with weights
& hooks, old fish bait, drink cans & food wrappers, on &
around the rocks adjacent to the sea.
Especially Dillon's Park
