Over 50 people participated in the recent An Taisce’s National Spring Clean with Kilteevan Tidy Towns and once again the people of the area demonstrated what community spirit and pride of place is all about.
Kilteevan Tidy Towns would like to express sincere thanks to everyone who participated and to Roscommon Co Council for their support and help.
Following on from the Spring Clean Kilteevan Tidy Towns is working to promote and foster best environmental standards. Illegal dumping and litter pollution is the most visible form of pollution and its presence immediately creates a negative impression of the area. As well as being unsightly, the material being dumped creates health concerns as well as contaminating water courses.
The Committee is now asking everyone the community to get involved and to speak out if they see someone littering or dumping illegally. They are encouraging the community to use to use Roscommon County Councils Low Cost Litter Line: 1850 – L-I-T-T-E-R (54 88 37) or 090 6637260 if they are aware of illegal littering in Kilteevan. Roscommon Co Council Environment Complaints Form can also be completed and emailed to [email protected] if anyone wishes to make a complaint.
Kilteevan Tidy Towns Committee is inviting everybody in the community who wishes to be involved in supporting the initiative for 2017 to a brief meeting in the Community Centre at 7.30pm on Tuesday May 2nd followed by “All Hands On Deck” as we get down to work. Participants are asked to bring their own gardening implements.
