Dumping is ruining our countryside

Mallow Tidy Towns will be having their main Spring Clean on Saturday April 5.

As in other years, MTT will have a number of meeting points all over town. They are hoping everyone will apply to an Taisce for a Spring Clean Pack. In the pack there will get rubbish bags, gloves and tabards to keep clothes clean.

Please go online to order a pack, or phone 01 4002219.

Last Saturday, together with members of Mallow AC, MTT collected 100 bags of litter. This was on a five-mile stretch of road from the Ten Arches bridge, past the old Sugar Factory and out as far as the Navigation Road junction. This stretch of road was cleaned last year in preparation for the Mallow 10 mile road race and 80 bags of rubbish were removed.

On Saturday meeting points are at HQ in Hibernian Way at 8am to do a litter pick of the side streets, car parks and laneways off Main St. At 10.30am the group are meeting at the entrance to the Community Campus at the top of Fair Street to continue their planting project there. MTT will take part again this year in the St Patrick's Day parade on Monday.
