South Dublin County Council launches Halloween Safety and Environmental Awareness Campaign 2017

10 Deireadh Fómhair 2017

South Dublin County Council is delighted to launch its Halloween Safety and Environmental Awareness Campaign 2017.

This year, to raise awareness and encourage our citizens to stay safe, the Council has published a colourful information leaflet providing facts and tips on how to stay safe at Halloween. The leaflet also contains details of the various family events hosted by South Dublin County Council’s Libraries. Members of the public can also find information on incentives offered by the Council to avoid damage to community open spaces as a result of illegal bonfires. “Bulbs Not Bonfires” is a reward available through the Council’s innovative Social Credits Scheme. This initiative provides communities with flowers in the spring in return for organising alternative Halloween activities which will not harm our environment.

A free pass to Ballymount Civic Amenity Centre will be provided to every Social Credit applicant / group during the month of October to encourage recycling, one pass allows one entry for one car and will be valid until 13th November, 2017.
