Kilkenny has achieved a No.1 result again in the latest Ibal survey .
This result reflects the hard work put in by the City Authorities and all our Voluntary groups over the last number of months. The assessors noted;
“Kilkenny has cemented its position as Ireland’s cleanest city – all sites surveyed got the top litter grade. What sets Kilkenny and other continuously high ranking towns apart is not just the lack of litter but the efforts put into the presentation of the environment e.g. High Street had beautiful new paving and a couple of years ago the approach to Kilkenny Castle was redesigned. The surveyor noted that Kilkenny Train Station (Interior) was almost museum like with historical photographs / notices – a lovely feature.”
The Bruce Spring-Clean celebration. The Fourth of July saw about 50 people gather to celebrate those who have worked with KKB during the year and have a draw for tickets to Bruce Springstein. A Great nightnight!
Kilkenny City launches “bin it your way” for 2013. Chewing gum is one of the most difficult wastes to clean from our city streets. It is so easy to dispose of it in the bin or by using a gum pop. why not try it !
