The "Spring Clean" in Ballinode, Tydavnet, Scotstown, Knockatallon, and Cornagilta School environs will take place on Saturday 13th April and the week preceding it. A skip will be provided for rubbish collected in each area. Litter pickers, bags etc are available from the Environmental Section, MTEK II building, Armagh Road, Monaghan. We look forward to our usual very positive response to that from our community.
The annual Eco camp in Ballinode will go ahead on the first week of July 2013. The annual litter poster competition will also be included, funded by Monaghan County Council Environmental Section. This year the focus is on "Gum Litter", and that will be the theme of the entries. The posters will be displayed at a later date, possibly in local libraries.
The "Second Eye" tour where people from another tidy town area in Monaghan will visit the locality and offer suggestions and criticisms, will go ahead later in the year, and in June there will be a tour of Tidy Towns villages and towns in North Monaghan.
