Leaving or throwing litter in a public place can result in an on-the-spot fine of €150, or a maximum fine of €3,000 if convicted in the District Court.

Gardaí responded to reports of illegal dumping on a roadway over the course of the weekend.

They are continuing to investigate the incident which occurred in west Dublin.

Highlighting the matter on Twitter, a Garda spokesperson said: “Contact details of the owner recovered from the rubbish. Investigations are underway.”

Fines

Leaving or throwing litter in a public place is an offence that can result in an on-the-spot fine of €150, or a maximum fine of €3,000 if you are convicted in the District Court.

Local authority litter wardens and the Gardaí can issue on-the-spot fines. If you continue littering after conviction, you may be fined up to €600 a day.

If you are convicted of a litter offence, you may also have to pay the local authority’s legal costs.

The Protection of the Environment Act 2003 introduced on-the-spot fines of up to €130,000 for causing environmental pollution, and €10,000 per day thereafter for continuing offences.
