On September 14,2017 at County Hall, Cork, Charleville was awarded second place in Category B2 of this competition. We scored a total of 2930.4 marks, out of a possible total of 3000. We came second to Carrigtwohill, being 5 points behind them but 21 points ahead of Bandon which was in third place.
We have made huge strides in this competition in the past two years, thanks to the diligence of staff of Cork County Council who clean our streets, our local schools and our volunteers who did regular clean ups on each of the mornings for the duration of this competition in May and June 2017. This competition aims to raise awareness of the litter problem which is an issue in every town and village in Ireland and we
are grateful to Cork County Council for their efforts in this regard. Seeing volunteers picking litter on the street has raised awareness among the general public and the situation is improving.
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 8 weeks in April and May. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org , with suggested clean up date preference.
