Two IBC’s each containing 1000 litres of toxic sludge have been found dumped at Faughart graveyard this morning (Thursday, 15 May).
Both IBCs are leaking and the Louth County Council have already tasked their contractor to recover and process the three containers.
This is the second such incident this week with three IBC’s found dumped at Drumgoolan.
Since the beginning of the 2014 there have been a total of 26 toxic diesel sludge dumping incidents invloving 92 tonnes of the toxic material. The cost of recovery and disposal so far this year is estimated at approximately €78,000.
Louth County Council would encourage members of the public to report any information they might have in respect of any of the unauthorised dumping.
