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.’

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.
