DATE ANNOUNCED FOR COUNTY CLEAN-UP DAY 2017 . Moira Murell Chief Excu of Kerry County Council will be on the roads of Kerry with Mayor of Tralee Cllr Terry O'Brien and Noel O'Reilly from KWD . 
 
Volunteers are being asked to participate in the 2017 County Clean-Up Day which will take place on Saturday, 8 April.
 
Now in its sixth year, the County Clean-Up, which takes place with the support of Kerry County Council and KWD Recycling, has proven to be a wonderful community event in which people clean up their respective areas and make their localities spick and span.
 
The event was launched this evening (Monday) at the Ballygarry House Hotel in Tralee to coincide with seminar for Tidy Towns groups from across the county.
 
The aim of the annual event is to ensure that visiting tourists and locals alike can see the true beauty of the Kerry countryside without unsightly litter strewn on the sides of the roads. Last year 3,500 people volunteered their time to clean sections of road and other public places in Kerry, and collected 7,000 bags of waste - amounting to 70 tonnes of waste.
 
This year the County Clean-Up Day is being extended and adopted by our neighbours in west Cork.
 
It is hoped to have as many groups, communities and individuals as possible out on the day to help create awareness and in turn help prevent people littering. Posters will be placed in local shops in the coming days encouraging people to sign up and correspondence is being sent out to all the voluntary groups and Tidy Towns committees who have been involved over the last six years.
