MALLOW: THE BIG CLEAN UP on Saturday, March 12th, 2011

The Big Clean Up in Mallow takes place on Saturday March 12th . Mallow Tidy Towns asks everyone who can to come along to one of the meeting points on Saturday morning at 10.30am. Bags, and disposable gloves will be ready at these locations to make a good spring clean of Mallow.

The recent IBAL survey (Irish Businesses Against Litter) survey rated Mallow as being Littered, and listed 48 th out of 53 areas examined. Everyone knows that with a little more effort Mallow can and will be better than that. Last August, Mallow had been rated “Clean to European Norms”, listed 27 th out of 53 towns / cities surveyed, and cleaner than Cobh, Midleton and Youghal. Neighbouring towns like Fermoy are deemed to be litter free. Mallow can be just as good and become Litter Free and be a cleaner better place to live, work and enjoy.

Looking around our approach roads, kerbs and open spaces we can see we all need to be a bit more careful about litter, and this Big Clean Up on Saturday March 12th will really help boost the tidiness of the town.

So come out on this Saturday morning, join the effort for an hour or two, or whatever you can, and make Mallow a cleaner better place. Meeting points are the Roundabout Tavern car park; Dogs Heads at the Spa; Garda Station Car Park; and Aldi, all at 10.30am.
