The bottle bank in Kilcurry has for some time been treated by a few individuals as a dumping ground. To eliminate this problem CCTV will monitor the area and prosecution of people identified will follow. If it does not belong in the bottle bank, take it home. Do not leave your rubbish for somebody else to clean up.”
