A TOTAL OF 18 clothing bins with a total value of €18,000 have turned up out of the blue in Ashbourne.

Gardaí recovered the clothing bins, which they believe were stolen and are appealing to the public for help in returning them to their owners.


The gardaí said that they have no more information about where the clothing bins came from or why they were randomly dumped in the Ashbourne area.

They do state that they believe they were stolen from various locations throughout the State.

A number have been identified by their owners and a further number are yet to be identified.

So, any of them look familiar?

If so, gardaí wants anyone that believes that they may have information as to ownership or any unlawful dealings in such bins to should contact the gardaí at Ashbourne on 01-80 10 600.
