Council provide details of a new litter regime for the district including a ride on mechanical cleaner for Newbridge

My second adjourned question from January’s MD meeting ‘Following the budget allocations, that the council provide details of a new litter regime for the district including a ride on mechanical cleaner for Newbridge and extra resources to deal with the ongoing and escalating litter problem.
Report: The Municipal District Office currently operates a street sweeping service from Monday to Friday and on Sunday mornings. Extra resources made available through the Environment Section will be used to provide additional services to include street sweeping when required e.g. bank holiday weekends and festivals, details to be agreed. Also, the Municipal District Office has ordered 2 mechanical sweepers, known as green machines. One will be based in Kildare Town and will also carry out cleaning services in Rathangan. The other green machine will be based in Newbridge. Delivery of both machines is expected in March 2017.
