Clondalkin Tidy Towns has joined forces with Greyhound Household to track down Clondalkin’s tidiest estate. Up to 45 estates are eligible to enter the competition which will run until June 1st.
The winning estate will receive €500 for spending on common areas, free skips for clean-ups and a winners’ plaque. The estates will be judged on general tidiness, lack of litter and their ability to recycle waste. Greyhound Household will be on hand to lend our industry knowledge to assist with recycling.

“Clondalkin has made great strides in competing in the national tidy towns competition over the past few years. We are continuously moving up the ranks, year on year. Greyhound has been generous sponsors over this period and we are hopeful this competition will help us improve our position even further this year.”
Greyhound Household Managing Director John Brosnan said:
“We know from our dealings with the Clondalkin Tidy Towns Committee, the amount of time and hard work they put into enhancing the area. This is reflected in the progress the town has made in recent years. Many of our colleagues live in the Clondalkin area and we are proud to be associated with this contest. We hope it will give Clondalkin that extra push for this years National Tidy Town’s competition. It will also allow Greyhound to continue to make people more aware of the importance of recycling.”
