Anti-Litter Challenge update
Saleen has entered the 2019 Cork County Council Anti-Litter Challenge. The areas to be judged include Saleen village, Cois Coillte, Briarsfield, Woodview Lawn and the roadside between Green Acres and Ballydwyer.
Saleen received 96.8 marks in the first judging period. Thank you to all who help to keep the area litter free. Judging continues until Wednesday June 19th. Points will be deducted for each piece of litter and each cigarette butt found. We would particularly ask smokers not to discard their cigarette butts by the roadside. Unfortunately, almost 30 cigarette butts are discarded daily in the village and along the roadside between the village and Green Acres!
Please help to keep our area litter free!
