Solar bins for Nenagh district

Seven solar bins have been procured by Tipperary Co Council's Environment section for Nenagh Municipal District and will be installed over the coming month.

The locations for the bins are as follows: Ballina (two), Dromineer (two), Terryglass (two) and Garrykennedy (one).

Solar bins have compactor technology to crush rubbish, which means they can hold significantly more waste than ordinary litter bins. The funding for the bins comes from an allocation of €150,000 secured under the Litter Infrastructure Support Grant Scheme.
