Litter Picking – Improve Our Environment

The Community Employment Scheme who do such a good job keeping the village clean are furloughed at the moment so please do your bit to keep the village clean and tidy. Lots of people are going out walking at this time, even if you only remove two or three items it will help. Wear gloves and use a ‘grabber’ if you have one.

Aluminium drinks cans can be disposed of at the Bring-Bank at Fitz’s Garage and plastic bottles can be dropped off for free at the recycling bank in Brew’s Car Park in Kilrush.

A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE HELPING OUT AT THIS TIME. Visit the Kilmihil Tidy Towns facebook page to see some of the sterling work done by volunteers in the village.
