At the height of the problem, items such as old fridges, mattresses, televisions and even an entire greenhouse were discarded on a section of the privately owned land.

The Friends of Bogside Park met on Monday morning to confirm arrangements for Kilsythians to band together on Saturday, September 17, to help clear up the area.
