A total of €45,000 is to go to six locations in Kildare for anti-dumping initiatives ahead of National Spring Clean Day tomorrow. 

Kildare Mayor Martin Miley said: “I’d like to welcome the funding for Kildare County Council of over €45,000 for the anti-dumping Initiative. A number of locations around Kildare have been identified and I look forward to this work commencing.  As you are aware Saturday is the big cleanup day for county Kildare and I would encourage communities to come together to clean up their areas.”

The Tír na Mona clean up in Donadea and surrounding areas is to receive €5,550, while the Barrow clean up in Athy will get €5,000. A total of €5,000 will go to Ardrew Meadows in Athy, and €9,000 is to be used for Cushaling Bog in Rathangan. Blackwood in Athy will recieve €10,500 while Castlefen in Sallins will get €10,000. 

The grants were approved by the Minister for Communications, Climate and Environment.
