Car park litter ‘a disgrace’

UUP councillor John Scott has branded the litter problem in Farmley car park “an absolute disgrace”.

Cllr Scott, who runs the Twice is Nice charity shop in Tramways, told Monday night’s council Environment Committee meeting that the bins are always overflowing and people regularly just open their car windows and dump their rubbish on the ground.

He said that Roads Service had taken steps to clean up the Glengormley car park a number of months ago, but that the problem was now as bad as ever again.

Hugh Kelly, the council’s Director of Environment Services, said that officers would send a letter to DRD Roads Service to “remind them of their responsibilities”.
