Tipperary County Council has begun a programme of greening shows and festivals in the county.
The events that have been targeted include: Clonmel Show, Bansha Show, Dualla Show, Nenagh Show, Thurles Sports Week and the Taste of Roscrea.
Approximately 15,000 people attend these events annually.
Tipperary County Council decided to deal with the “Waste and Litter” aspect of Green your Festival to ensure the desired results. Therefore, they concentrated on signage alerting visitors of waste segregation, acquiring triple loop litter bins, using clear and biodegradable bin bags.
Staff from Tipperary County Council also set up and ‘manned’ an information stand promoting preventative measures, raising awareness and instilling positive behaviour with visitors to the events.
