"Cork City Council has sought quotations for the clean-up of the site and it is envisaged that a site clean-up will begin in the coming weeks,"
Ms O'Sullivan said. "Financial assistance for the clean-up has been sought from the Department through Waste Enforcement Regional Lead Authorities."
Ms O’Sullivan added the Council will repair security fencing on the boundaries of the site and utilise CCTV to deter future dumping of household waste on the site and for the gathering of information for legal proceedings against dumpers.
She said the Council will co-ordinate a “multiagency approach” to enforcement on the site and carry out “multi-agency site inspections”.
