Reward for information about culprits who dumped milk on Antrim coast
A DUP councillor has offered a reward for catching those responsible for dumping milk cartons off the Antrim coast in a recent dumping incident.
DUP councillor for Larne, Andrew Clarke, has offered to match the reward put up by Farmview for information leading to the capture of those involved.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Clarke said:
“Really disappointed to see milk cartons again being dumped on our lovely coast road.
Putting plastic in the sea does huge damage and is a terrible look for one of Northern Ireland’s most scenic areas.
“I slithered down and gathered these ones up, so at least they are accounted for.
“A previous theory blamed someone in hospitality, but this doesn’t make a lot of sense with current restrictions.”
Dumping is ‘a form of treason’
Clarke had previously stated: “I hate litter. In fact, I would go as far as to regard it as a form of treason.
“While all litter is bad, plastic is especially damaging. To put them by the sea is worse again.
The offer to match Farmview’s £500 reward still stands, if anyone can help catch them.
A spokesperson for Mid and East Antrim Borough Council said: “The vast majority of our citizens are responsible, but unfortunately there are those who continue to flout the law when it comes to dog fouling, fly-tipping and littering.”
