PRESS INFO SEVENTH KERRY COUNTY CLEAN-UP DAY IS LAUNCHED
 
The annual County Clean-Up Day has been launched and everyone in the county is being asked to get involved and play their part. Now in its seventh year and with the support of Kerry County Council and KWD Recycling, the County Clean-up will take place on Saturday, 14 April. Last year, 5,000 volunteers gathered 6,500 bags of litter on a single day in their own localities which left the county of Kerry looking spick and span.
Organisers are asking local residents’ associations, schools, youth groups, sporting groups, businesses, families or simply a few friends to get together and gather litter along the major routes and along the local country roads throughout Kerry on the day.
Colm ‘The Gooch’ Cooper will be on the County Clean-up team for 2018 working hard as always to promote the county and lend a helping hand.
KWD Recycling are busy preparing County Clean-up packs which will be distributed around the county and groups are asked to register with KWD to receive their pack and to arrange a collection points for bags of litter collected. Full details are available at www.countycleanup.com or e-mail countycleanup@kwd.ie.
Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr John Sheahan, encouraged everyone in the county to take part: ‘Kerry is a county so reliant on its reputation as a clean environment and its reputation as a tourist destination, so every citizen has a role to play in keeping the county tidy.
 
‘The message we want to get out this year is to clean up the roads that are less frequently collected and stretches of roadside that might not have been cleaned in recent years. I hope as many people as possible will participate – all you have to do is think about the roads we pass every day on our way from home to the shops, schools and work. And get involved.’
