Bin there – Dump that!!!
The issue of rubbish being left around the bins will unfortunately remain no matter where the bins are unless people take pride in their community and take their packaging home with them! Bottle banks should be used for ‘exactly what it says on the tin’! – Bottles!!!
Does the positioning of the bins on the main route into Borrisoleigh from the Thurles side portray the village in a positive or negative light? In these days of environmental awareness it can only paint Borrisoleigh in a good light, showing how serious the village is in trying to keep our area green and in doing our bit for the environment.
