Dublin City Council are asking locals to “respect” the city after sharing photos of a heavily littered Camden Street.

The photos, taken in the early hours of Tuesday morning, showed the rubbish left by people partying on the popular street over the weekend after a new JD Wetherspoons pub opened there in recent weeks.

Ireland’s newest Wetherspoons has proved to be a hugely successful venture, with droves of people queuing along Camden Street to see the inside of the chain restaurant and pub for themselves.

But with the crowds, however, comes a huge littering problem, especially as the country prepares to reopen nearby nightclubs like Coppers, Dicey’s, and Everleigh at the end of next month.

Taking to Twitter this morning, Dublin City Council’s Waste Management Services asked the public to look after their local areas and to clean up after themselves.

Attaching photos of the street filled with rubbish, they said: “A glimpse of Camden Street in the early hours of this morning. Our outdoor spaces are a vital resource for everyone in the #community to enjoy.

“Please respect yours and #lovethisplace #leavenotrace. Thanks Séan-Michael and team. #wastemanagement #nightshift”

Concerned about the issue of street littering, one user responded: “More bins should be installed. This is a very common problem in Irish towns where the bins are just not there.

“Every second pole should have a bin. Imagine how many people are in Dub city centre.”

Another chimed in, suggesting that restaurants should install bins outside their premises to help combat the problem.

They wrote: “Dublin City needs to have better bins, and in this case, where most of the litter come from specific restaurants, they should install bins that compost the amount of litter they help to produce nearby. They are part of the city too.”
