Charleville Tidy Towns is appealing to all residents of Charleville to come out this weekend (5th – 7th May) to clean up the area where they live. We hope that residents associations will get involved and encourage everybody to take part in their own neighbourhood. We would like to see residents of all housing estates, residents of all approach roads as well as residents of all streets, lanes and roads in the town itself to take pride in the appearance of their own patch and have their own locality spic and span. We are aware that some areas have already done a clean-up and we thank them.
We are making a special appeal to all organisations and associations, especially those bodies engaged with young people, i.e. the GAA, Camogie, Soccer, Rugby, Scouts to encourage their members to turn out in force to ensure their grounds and surrounds are litter free.
Charleville Tidy Towns will facilitate the clean up by having a supply of bags available. Please contact Councillor Ian Doyle (087 6644654) for same. Cork County Council will ensure all litter will be collected as soon as possible after the clean-up is completed.
Charleville is a wonderful place in which to live. It is our town and our responsibility to make it as pleasant as possible a place to live in, work in and play in. Let’s show our pride in our town by taking part in the clean up this weekend.
The anti-litter challenge, run by Cork county Council starts on Monday, 8th May. There will be three judging periods, 8 -17 May, 22 – 31 May and 6 -14 June. During these dates, adjudicators will visit and judge our streets, residential areas, green areas and school/service areas according to the presence/absence of litter. We appeal to everyone to be conscious of disposing of their litter in the bins provided and their cigarette butts in the appropriate receptacles. We appeal to residents of all estates to keep their roadways and green areas litter free. We appeal especially to the owners of licenced premises, fast food outlets and bookmakers to be vigilant and spend a few minutes each morning to ensure the footpaths outside their premises are litter and cigarette but free.
