Entire contents of students’ house dumped in Portstewart
“On the weekend of 15-16 June while I was driving into this area I saw what appeared to be the entire portable contents of the inside of a house dumped onto the small front lawn,” he told the Times in a statement.
“It was disgrace - bed settees, chairs, duvets, bed linen, television, radio cassette player, among just some of the things that could be seen.
“On the Monday I telephoned Coleraine Borough Council Environmental Department who contacted the letting agency. The Council also took photographs of the dumping.
“The landord was informed and arrangements where made for the dumping to be cleared away.”
Councillor Fielding claimed that there had been a number of anti-social behaviour incidents at the same location during the student year.
“Coleraine Borough Council put a lot of time and resources into this area including extra bin collections in this area.
It appears that some students have no regard for the area that they part reside in for a short time in their life.
