What Is a Community Project?
A community project is any idea from an individual or collaborative enterprise that would benefit your local community. Your idea could be anything from encouraging biodiversity in your town or school, to restoring a community area, or supporting an existing club who’d like to expand their services. The most important aspect of the project is that directly improves your community.
Examples of Previous Winners
Big Belly Compactors Bins
Maynooth Tidy Towns won the POP award for their smart bins project with real-time information. This means the Waste Collection companies are notified when the bins are full. Run by Solar Powered Batteries, the bins are only emptied when they’re full. This cuts down on collection runs.
Celbridge Tidy Towns
This Committee won a POP award for their “Celbridge Naturally” Project. The project highlights and creates an appreciation of the biodiversity in Celbridge through two biodiversity boards in the area. One is a wildlife information board while the other is river specific.
