Mallow Clean Up Day A Huge Success

Mallow Tidy Towns Committee want to greatly thank everyone for coming out last Saturday to clean up Mallow. A really brilliant joint effort took place between sporting clubs, community groups, residents associations, businesses, politicians, clergy, retired people, volunteers and individuals. Many people came out at the start at 10am and more joined in when they saw what was happening and how easy it is to make a huge difference to Mallows litter problem. Over 60 people took to the streets, lanes, open spaces and approach roads of our town and hand picked over 300 bags of litter, a massive mount of about 5 tonnes of litter for the Town Council to dispose of today Monday. It was an awe inspiring really really brilliant effort from all who turned out and made a town cleaner on a good day. photo credit: trindade.joao The people of Mallow really took up the battle against litter last Saturday and proved that when Mallow wants – Mallow can.

We will all work to get Mallow right up there in the best of...

Clean Up Mallow Day – March 27th (Update)

The Clean Up Mallow Day takes place on Saturday March 27th. Mallow Tidy Towns asks everyone who can to come along to one of 5 meeting points on Saturday morning at 10am. Bags, bibs and disposable gloves will be ready at these locations to make a good spring clean of Mallow. A litter survey of Mallow recently completed by An Taisce listed the town as being moderately littered. Looking around our approach roads, kerbs and open spaces we can see how true this is. Neighbouring towns like Fermoy are deemed to be litter free. With a bit of care and attention from everyone, Mallow can be just as good and become Litter Free and be a cleaner better place to live, work and enjoy. So come out on this Saturday morning, join the effort and make Mallow a cleaner better place. Meeting points, areas to be cleaned and contact details are: Meeting Point (all at 10am) Cleaning Area Tidy Towns Coordinator Roundabout Tavern car park Limerick Road, train station car park, pedestrian footbridge, Killarney/Navigation Road Paddy Whelan 087 6793758 Roundabout Tavern car park Cork Road to Dromahane turn-off, and the 2 slip roads at Ten Arch Bridge Paddy Whelan 087 6793758 Dogs Heads at the Spa Muddy Hill and car park, Spa Road and Spa Glen Jim O’Keeffe 087 9233891 Bus Stop, Park Road Park Road, Playground, car parks,...
