Charleville Tidy Towns

April Schedule on Home & Tidiness & Litter Control

CTT needs urgent proactive community involvement on Anti Litter Drive. Tidiness & Litter Control is still THE major challenge in many areas of the town streets, residential areas and approach roads where Litter is judged.
In 2017 Charleville scored a very low 50 marks[ 56%] and lost out on -40 marks [-44%] of the total 90 marks available in this vital core category.
N.B. This represents an increase of just 2 marks or 2.5% increase over the past 4 years, a less than impressive improvement performance trend, despite the regular clean up actions by dedicated staff from Cork County Council and very active support of our CTT team.
All Residential area associations across the Community are now strongly encouraged to help tackle the causes of this Litter problem by involvement and participation in the annual Spring Clean Anti Litter campaign over 4 weeks in April. CTT will provide support and assistance to teams in each area, provide refuse recycling bags and organize with CCC for collection & counting.

If your residential area team wishes to participate in this clean up of your area and be allocated a slot in our clean up schedule please contact us by email asap on , with suggested clean up date preference.

To monitor each Spring clean up CTT must advise & demonstrate to the Tidy Towns judges the scale of clean up in all areas. This year we will maintain a ‘League Table’ of Bags of litter counted & photographed on collection in what we hope will be many emerging Litter Free Zones. League table results will be reported back to each residential area representative, into the TT submission for May, 2018 and on our new CTT web site.

CTT Recognition Awards will be presented, after the annual TT national awards in September, for the best area team efforts, best involvement of youth, best web site feedback provided on the source causes of litter in your area and your best recommendations or suggestions for future Litter prevention.
All Community anti litter prevention recommendations will be evaluated in confidence and published on new web site for inclusion in future action planning within the community, with youth education, with CCC and CTT.

Please get your residential area involved in our Anti LITTER Clean up.
Please contact; stating your area, street, estate, association, location. Look forward to your Active participation.
