“GIVE YOUR LITTER A LIFT”
NEW CAMPAIGN TO STAMP OUT LITTER AT KERRY’S BEACHES
Kerry County Council is encouraging anyone vising the county’s beaches this summer to ‘Give Your Litter A Lift’ and to ensure that coastal areas remain free of litter over the coming months. The local authority will be increasing the number of litter bins available at beaches across the county but is also appealing to all beach users to act responsibility by taking litter home.
