Kilmallock Tidy Towns celebrates Reuse Month with Limerick City and County Council

Kilmallock Tidy Towns is celebrating Reuse Month with waste awareness seminar on the 3R’s in the Deebert House Hotel on Wednesday, October 27 2021 at 7:30pm.

This free event is being held in collaboration with Limerick City and County Council.

The 3R’s are Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

Reducing means choosing to use things with care to reduce the amount of waste generated. Reusing involves the repeated use of items or parts of items which still have usable aspects, while recycling resources when choosing goods or disposing of them. 

Did you know that one third of all food produced goes to waste and that the biggest items going to waste are bread and meat?

Did you know that if we eliminated waste we would have enough food to feed 2 million people and eliminate food shortage?

These are some of the topics that you will hear and learn more about if you come along to this most interesting of topics.

With a raft of new legislation coming down the line on waste it is often quite difficult to keep abreast of all the changes.

This presentation will be given by Sinead McDonnell Environmental Awareness Officer with Limerick City and County Council. Sinead will give you an overall view on waste segregation and waste disposal and you will go away with a clear view on what to put into the correct bin.

Ben O’Sullivan, Chair of Kilmallock Tidy Towns Group said, “To kick off the evening we will have the prizes for the Best Kept Business Premises and The Most Improved Business Premises. The adjudicators will be present to announce the winners kindly sponsored by Ryan’s Supervalu Kilmallock who will also be present to present the prizes.  All in all a most interesting evening assured and I would encourage anyone who is interested in helping keep Kilmallock and surrounding areas tidy and promoting the 3R’s to attend.”
