Intro Text 

Cleaning of the roads and footpaths within the county is the responsibility of DLR Cleansing Section, with approximately 2,500 tonnes of waste per year collected.

Road Sweeping is carried out in accordance with the schedules set out below, with the aim being to sweep villages daily, cycle lanes once per week, main traffic routes fortnightly, and estate roads once per month. Please note that during Autumn or for operational reasons such as requirements for traffic management, this frequency of sweeping cannot always be achieved. 

Any queries regarding sweeping or requests for emergency sweeping can be made by contacting the Civic Hub on 01 205 4700, or emailing
