Waste management and the Corona Virus
As a result of an increase in domestic waste arisings in the county, Kildare County Council has increased the opening times for two Civic Amenity Sites and also provided guidance on using recycling banks and managing waste at home.
The Government agreed, at the request of Eoghan Murphy T.D., Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, to make an order, which has the effect of further extending all public participation periods in the planning system for 19 additional days, up to and including 9 May 2020.

Kildare County Council is allocating designated hours in our Parks for those who have been cocooning for the last number of weeks. The designated hours will be from 1.30pm – 3.30pm each day. We are asking for the co-operation and understanding of the general public to facilitate these times during the day and to allow people who have had to cocoon use our parks safely and give them the space to do this. Other users should avoid using the parks at this time and use the parks at other times instead. The designated hours will apply from Wednesday 13th May 2020.
