The prevalence of litter and therefore those who illegally dump it, is evident around our area. Limerick Co. Co. is committed to policing the environment and there are three fulltime officers for that purpose. The officer for the western part of the city and county is Eamon Dalton and his number is 069 62100. There is also a free phone number at 1800 201151. You may even e-mail to litter@limerickcoco.ie. It is up to us to do the policing of this problem in our own areas, so get on the phone if you notice your area being spoiled for all of us by littering.
