THE BODY OF a man has been found in a waste truck at a Panda recycling facility this morning.

Gardaí said that they are investigating the discovery of the body of a man at a waste recycling facility at Ballymount Road, Dublin 24.

The body was discovered this morning by staff who were unloading a waste truck. They reported the incident to gardaí shortly before 9am.

A spokesperson from Panda said that the truck had collected waste from bins used by commercial premises. The waste from the bins was then tipped into the yard at the Panda facility in Ballymount.

When staff spotted the body, they immediately called the gardaí, said the spokesperson.

It is not known yet which of the commercial waste bins the body may have originally come from.

The body is not that of a staff member from Panda.

The body of the man, who believed to be in his 30s, remains at the scene and the office of the State Pathologist has been notified.
