Two people have been arrested by gardaí under the Waste Management Act in Co Donegal.

They were detained on Wednesday as part of an ongoing investigation.

A man aged in his 60 and a 28-year-old woman were held at Letterkenny garda station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

They were questioned about offences under the Waste Management Act.

They were both released early on Thursday morning, and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Gardaí say investigations are on-going.

Waste Management Acts provide for a general duty on everyone not to hold, transport, recover or dispose of waste in a manner that causes or is likely to cause environmental pollution.
