Crisp Packet Recycling
Further to recent news that the facility for the recycling of crisp packets and chocolate wrappers is no longer available in our Information Hub (Phone Box) in the village, members of the community are reminded that these items can now be placed in your domestic recycling bin. Soft plastics are now accepted in the recycling bin due to advancements in technologies at recycling facilities in Ireland and access to new markets where this material can be processed. This includes all plastic films from your shopping, plastic bottles from milk, water and beverages; plastic tubs, containers and food trays; yogurt pots as well as soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles. A full list is on Repak’s ‘What can I recycle’ page  https://repak.ie/recycling/what-can-i-recycle/

Newsletters
Click here to read the February Tidy Towns newsletter.   We recommended it for your perusal as it keeps our Community in touch with initiatives eg. There is a generous tree sponsorship offer from EZ living in this one.
