Litter threat to coastline

 

Sir, – Further to “Litter greater threat than pollution to coast” (November 25th), a simple solution to reduce the problem would be to introduce more bins along our beaches and increase the frequency with which they are emptied. Bull Island, a 5km stretch of beach in Co Dublin, has approximately five refuse bins, and these can be full for days without collection. Burrow Beach has a 3km stretch with approximately three bins. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Without getting too much into semantics, isn’t litter also a form of pollution? – Yours, etc,
