WEEKLY LITTER PICK
Last Sunday we had twenty seven Volunteers (including our newest Volunteer) together with two Transition Year students out for the weekly Litter Pick.
Twelve bags were collected which, when segregated yielded two bags of cans, one of glass, one of plastic and eight of general waste.
In addition to this, three bags of waste, one each of cans, glass and plastic were collected from Litter Picks carried out during the previous week.
It is very disappointing for us in Ballincollig Tidy Towns to see some traders and members of the public putting domestic waste in the bins on the street. It is of course illegal to do this. These bins are for general public use.
MORE HELP NEEDED
Last Sunday we welcomed another new Volunteer to the Tidy Towns. We are hoping more will join us in the coming weeks and months
More Volunteers are needed for the weekly Litter Pick or to work on several upcoming projects. Please lend your support. If you can offer just one hour a week, contact PAT CLARKE on 087 6348807.
Sometimes the projects undertaken by the CE/TUS workers are not visible but nonetheless are still important. This week they tackled an overgrown lane at the top of Pine Walk in Muskerry Estate. In the past this lane had been maintained by local residents. They worked on this over two mornings and the result was dramatic.
During the week work at the Allotment continued. We are excited to see the difference the changes will make.
Work was carried out on the steps and pathway from behind Westgate Foundation to Innishmore this week. The area was tidied up and made more accessible. Six one tonne bags were filled and taken away.
John continued cleaning around the edges of the shrubs in the Car Park behind Quish’s SuperValu during the week. The Car Park is very busy so it proved somewhat difficult to get the work done. However, now that it’s completed the difference is noticeable.
Last weekend saw a marked improvement in the parking near the Allotment. However, on the western entrance to the Regional Park, parking was atrocious. People showed total disregard for the work that is being done.
Come on folks. This is crazy. A little thought here.
