KCC to phase out disposable cups at Aras an Chontae

Kerry County Council is to phase out the use of disposable cups at Aras an Chontae during the first quarter of this year.

Instead, the local authority is to provide council-branded reusable cups for use at the County Building Campus.

Kerry County Council, which is signed up to the Southern Region Waste Management Plan, is aiming to reduce waste generated at the building by 10% by eliminating the use of single-use packaging and segregating office waste.

Recently, Cllr Norma Foley said local authorities have an important role in leading change in society.
