first_imgLocal residents take part in the Coravaddy clean-up.Local residents of Drumkeen and the surrounding areas gave up their Sunday morning rest in exchange for a litter pick up and community clean up today.Local county councillor Liam Doherty, who was part of the clean-up team, commended the team for their efforts.He made the comments after he joined a group of local residents this morning to take part in a clean-up operation along the Corravaddy road and forest. “Donegal County Council officials came to the area just over a week ago with some machinery to remove the bulk of the waste which had been illegally and carelessly dumped in the Corravaddy area.”“Following this, I approached the Council’s Litter Warden about the issue who kindly agreed to supply a group of local volunteers with pickers, rubbish bags and high-viz jackets as they too wanted to get involved and help clean up the road here next to the forest.”“I also spread the word that a group of us would be taking part in a litter pick up and members of the local Sinn Féin Cumann agreed to also lend a hand.”“This morning’s clean up went very well, and all together we managed to collect around three tonnes of rubbish. This mainly consisted of litter but we also came across old electronic equipment, TVs, car parts and other items that were tossed out here along the road by fly tippers.” “I must congratulate the local people here who gave of their time this morning to come along and help out as part of the clean-up: they are a credit to their community.”“Also, special thanks must go to the Council and the local litter warden for supplying our group with pickers, bags and bibs so that we could quickly and safely gather up all this discarded waste and litter.”“It’s through working together as a community that our local areas can look their best.”Bagging it and binning it in Coravaddy!LOCALS PRAISED FOR THEIR MASSIVE SUNDAY MORNING CLEAN-UP! was last modified: May 10th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:clean-upCllr Liam DohertyCoravaddyDrumkeenlast_img
