Galway County Hazardous Waste Events

Galway County Council has developed and delivered a Household Hazardous Waste Prevention Programme for householders, community groups and Tidy Towns organisations. The local authority received support from several libraries and Tidy Towns in the county.

The events were held between July 2015 – December 2015 in the following locations: Athenry Library, Gort Library, Spiddal Library, Tuam Library, Oranmore Library and Moycullen.

Facebook and Twitter were used to promote the initiative in the various locations and also through local information networks.

 There was significant interest in this area amongst the general public. Very positive feedback from the workshops and the documentation produced.
