Draft Kildare Litter Management Plan 2020 - 2023
Kildare County Council proposes to replace its Litter Management Plan 2016-2019 .
A new draft plan has been prepared for the prevention and control of litter in the county area setting out appropriate objectives and targets for the three year period 2020-2023.

Local authorities have a responsibility for the collection and disposal of litter, promotion of awareness of the polluting effects of litter and encouraging participation by persons in preventing and overcoming the effects of litter.
