South Dublin County Council ran a Christmas Decoration Competition from Recycled Materials and last week on December 16th, the Mayor of South Dublin County, Cllr Sarah Holland awarded the winners in County Hall.
Mayor Holland said:
“Every year the fantastic response to this competition amazes me and this year was no different. Handmade decorations are so precious. Every time you make a decoration from ordinary household recyclable materials, you are helping the environment and creating something unique that can be given as gifts to your family. Once you get into the habit of thinking this way, there is no limit to your creativity, the amount of recycling you can do and the money you can save. Congratulations to everyone.”
The competition aims to highlight the importance of recycling over Christmas and also to remind everyone that food waste can increase over the Christmas, so use up leftovers or freeze food to be used another time.
