Calls Made For Drones To Help Tackle Illegal Dumping In Wicklow

A Wexford senator is calling for drones to be made available to catch illegal dumpers in the new year.

Laws passed last year allow Wicklow County Council to use CCTV to monitor fly tipping activity.

The Local Government Management Agency has put to together a new code to expand the range of recording devices permitted, to include body cams and drones.

Fianna Fáil senator Malcolm Byrne says Environment Minister Eamon Ryan should not delay in implementing that.
