The street sweeping schedule for Athlone’s housing es tates is to be cut back in 2015.
Instead of being swept once every six weeks, as per the 2014 schedule, housing estates will now be swept quarterly. The new timetable is part of the Schedule of Municipal District Works for 2015 revealed to councillors this week.
The change for housing estates is the only alteration to the street sweeping schedule. Athlone town core areas will continue to be swept daily, and Athlone approach roads weekly.
Moate town will be swept twice weekly; Glasson, Ballykeeran, and Ballymore monthly; and smaller towns and villages in the district on a quarterly basis.
