THE BODY OF the man found in a waste truck at a recycling facility in Dublin yesterday morning has been identified.

Gardaí confirmed that the man’s family is being informed of his death.

The man, believed to be in his 30s and who was originally from Poland, was found by staff at the Panda recycling facility on Ballymount Road in Dublin 24 as they unloaded a waste truck on Friday.

The truck had been collecting waste from bins used by commercial premises which was then tipped into the yard at the facility in Ballymount.

Gardaí are investigating whether the man may have been sleeping in a bin when it was emptied.
