School Car Free Day 2016

School Programme

Well done to all staff,students and parents who took part in Limericks second annual School Car Free Day on May 18th.The event saw people ditch the car and use a more sustainble way of going about their daily journey. Park&Stride proved to be a very popular option this year. Park&Stride is a very suitable alternative for commuters who have too great a distance to walk/cycle, they would travel some of the journey by car, park in a safe location and walk the remainder of the way. All schools who send us their results for School Car Free Day will be entered into a draw for a €50 voucher.

This year, the Council is holding an event focusing on the 5 Rs, namely Rethink, Reuse, Restore, Repair and Recycle. An estimated 28,000 people use Mungret Recycling Centre each year with a large proportion of visitors availing of the on-site reuse facilities, which encourage the reuse of everyday items ranging from tables and chairs to paint and bicycles. The upcoming Earth Day event will provide an opportunity for members of the public to learn about composting and food waste at the Stopfoodwaste kitchen and view examples of Upcycled furniture courtesy of Back2New Upcycling in Newcastle West. Security in Shredding will shred confidential items from householders and SMEs (limit of 2 black bags per person) between 1.00pm and 3.00pm. Limerick Smarter Travel will be here with information on the benefits of incorporating walking, cycling and shared travel into your daily travel routine as well as information on the supports available to you, your friends and family. Such as the bicycle collection and recycling service on offer all year round, bicycle repair and sales locations around the city and county.
