Funding boost for Kildare County Council for Recycling

Kildare County Council are to receive a funding boost to assist them with the costs of running their bring banks and other recycling facilities according to local Fianna Fail TD, Michael Fitzpatrick.

“Kildare County Council will receive funding of just over €120,000 from the Government’s Environment Fund to help to meet the costs of running the recycling facilities including bring banks around the county.”

“The Environment Fund exists as a result of the plastic bag and landfill levy. It is important that everyone can see that these levies go directly back to helping the environment.”

“It is essential that everyone plays their part in protecting the environment and recycling household waste goes a long way. The provision of accessible and convenient recycling centres is vital if people are to be encouraged to recycle so I am delighted that this extra support is being given to Kildare County Council for this.”

“I would like to commend all of the staff at the recycling centres in Kildare who provide this excellent service,” concluded Deputy Fitzpatrick.
