Anti-Litter League Divisional Awards

Three award ceremonies were held this morning to honour the prizewinning villages of the 2019 Cork County Council Anti-Litter League.

The ceremonies took place this morning before the Divisional Committee Meetings in County Hall, Clonakilty, and Mallow. Representatives from community groups were presented with certificates by the Chairs of the Divisional Committees.

Clean Ocean Initiatives

Cork County Council has recently been involved in a number of net recycling and fishing industry generated waste management initiatives.

By providing segregated waste reception facilities the Council aim to make it easier for fishermen to help turn their retired fishing equipment and other waste into a useful resource for recycling or up-cycling.  This minimises both cost and any negative impact on the marine environment.

Ambient Air Monitoring


Ambient Air Quality refers to the condition of the Air in the surrounding Environment. 

European Union directives set down air quality standards in Ireland and the other member states for a variety of pollutants. 

The ambient Air Quality and Cleaner Air for Europe (CAFE) Directive (2008/50/EC) was published in 2008, replacing the previously published Framework Directive and the first, second and third daughter Directives.
