Clare County Council has four full-time mobile patrol wardens, with input when necessary from a fifth warden as circumstances dictate. The county is divided into areas with each warden having a specified area of the county to oversee. Their day-to-day patrols are carried out throughout these areas, in both a pro-active patrol capacity and also in response to complaints received from members of the public and from other government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), An Taisce, etc.
Clare County Council operates a complaints management system whereby all incoming complaints are logged and then assigned to the relevant member of staff to investigate and resolve. Investigation of instances of littering or dumping may result in the issuing of legal enforcement notices, fines or prosecutions of offenders, (working in conjunction with the county solicitor and the courts service). Our wardens also work to clear up the smaller occurrences of littering and illegal dumping and, where necessary, we will liaise with the municipal district offices to have sites of illegal dumping cleared.
