Legislation has been passed which will allow local authorities use CCTV to identify people who take part in illegal dumping, without data protection concerns.

Fianna Fáil Senator Malcolm Byrne, says a code of practice is being drawn up, to allow CCTV footage be used to prosecute fly-tippers and people who illegally dump.

Senator Byrne says littering and illegal dumping is costing all councils nationally between €90 million and €100 million per year.
