The Gum Litter Taskforce which aims to educate and raise awareness was launched by Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council Pat McCarthy.

This follows a national agreement between the Department of Environment and Food and Drink Industry Ireland to fund a national gum litter awareness programme until 2017.

Advertising campaigns, a schools education programme and a mobile phone app are all part of the initiative.
