Diesel sludge dumping north of Dundalk this morning

Diesel sludge dumping north of Dundalk this morning

Two diesel sludge cubes have been dumped at the old customs checkpoint at the border near the Carrickdale.

An IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container) can hold up to 1,000 litres of sludge each. 

Last year it cost the taxpayer €153,238 to dispose of IBCs, and that figure will no doubt increase drastically this year.
