Christmas Tree Recycling at Kyletalesha Landfill

Christmas Trees are being accepted for recycling free of charge for the month of January at Kyletalesha Landfill. Please ensure to remove any lights and decorations beforehand. This refers to Real trees only.  

Clean streets start with you and me.

Lets all start afresh this New Years Day and keep the walkways and paths clean for all users. Please be a responsible dog owner and clean up after your pet.   Walk away from a €150 fine.

Dogs are not just for Christmas

Dogs are not just for Christmas nor is the responsibility to clean up after them. If your dog fouls while you are out walking, bag it, bin it or bring it home.   Think of other walkers and path users and walk away from a €150 fine.
