KCC to carry out audit of clothes banks

Kerry County Council is to carry out an audit of clothes banks at its recycling sites.

Sinn Fein Cllr Toireasa Ferris called on the council to facilitate St Vincent de Paul to locate clothes banks to ensure benefit from the collection goes to those in the county in need of their support.

The local authority has 96 bottle bank sites in the county and the majority of these have textile recycling bins; those placed at Civic Amenity Sites have followed a competitive tender process.
