Launch of Anti-Litter Initiative on DASHBOARD DINING

Launch of Anti-Litter Initiative on DASHBOARD DINING

Team Tullamore, which consist of Tullamore Tidy Towns, Tullamore Chamber of Commerce and Offaly County Council, is calling on all businesses in Tullamore to encourage their patrons to take responsibility for their take away cups and packaging items.

On every road into and out of Tullamore and around the footpaths, there is an increasing amount of littering, with disposable cups, plastic bottles, chip bags and wrappers to name a few, being thrown from cars. Most of the litter is non-biodegradable and will remain in the ditches for years.

The aim of this initiative is to encourage any pub, café or restaurant which serves takeaway food and packaging to request their customers to be more environmentally responsible. Team Tullamore will be visiting all premises over the coming days to speak with the managers and explain the seriousness of the issue with them and ask them to display a window sticker in a prominent place for their customers.
