€2,000,000 spent on street cleaning each year in Kerry

Up to 2 million euro is spent on street cleaning on the county`s major roads and towns every year according the Environmental Awareness Officer with Kerry County Council. Michael O Coillean says it would be impossible to provide a seven day cleaning service across the county as they don`t have the staff available. He says the local community needs to have a more proactive approach as the cost of street cleaning is increasing every year.
