Are you recycling right?

Do you have sweet papers, wet paper or plastic bags in your recycling bin? If so, then you are contributing to the growing amount of recycling rejected due to contamination. Why is this happening? Well many people believe that all plastic is recyclable whereas the reality is that only certain plastic such as rigid plastic is recyclable. If you look at the food items you buy every week during your shopping trip and look at the packaging around these items, you will find that a fraction of the packaging can go into the recycling bin. So here is a quick quiz... To make a chicken curry, you need to buy the ingredients but what do you do with the packaging. Is all the packaging recyclable?

  • Plastic container from the chicken
  • Plastic wrap/bag from peppers, onions and mushrooms
  • Tin from coconut milk
  • Plastic container from fresh coriander leaves
  • Milk carton
  • Plastic wrap/bag from rice
  • Plastic wrap/bag from naan bread

Four items from the list can be recycled, once they are clean and dry,  and these are the plastic rigid containers, milk carton and tins. All other items must go into the general waste bin. It is important to point out that if an item is put into the recycling bin that shouldn't be put in there e.g. plastic bag, wet paper, sweet wrappers, dirty containers, then this will end up contaminating the load and will end up as landfill waste. So to increase awareness and improve on recycling, let your friends and neighbours know. Think about it this way, if your neighbour puts incorrect material into their recycling bin, then this will impact the overall load... After all your efforts to recycle better!

It may sound too good to be true but fat dissolving injections are as effective as the name suggests.

They are administered by our in-house Dr. Micheal Flynn who has been attending our salon for the past 10 years. It is the double chin and neck area that is treated and is suitable for both men and women. If you haven’t heard of fat dissolving, it is a very popular and relatively new treatment that is used to target stubborn pockets of fat on the jaw line and chin area. The injection dissolves and eliminates fat cells in a safe and effective way, making it perfect for dealing with stubborn fat that simply won’t budge with exercise.

The main ingredient is a fat dissolving substance sodium deoxycholate, which is found naturally in the body. This is injected into the treatment area which over time will destroy the fat cells. These are then removed from the body by its own lymphatic system, a complex network that rids the body of unwanted toxins and waste.

It is important to understand that fat dissolving injections are not a weight loss treatment. The injections should only be used on people who are a healthy size or carrying a little extra weight. It’s most effective on the pockets of fat stored under the jawline, known as the double chin, a migration of fat cells from the cheeks to the jaw line.

The injections work at a slow pace. It can take serval weeks for full results, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. The results are permanent, once you don’t gain a massive amount of weight.

The next clinic is Monday August 22. To book an appointment or more information, call Jill on 064 6632966.

Six members of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will set out from County Meath on Wednesday on vintage tractors.

They are participating in the annual Eastern Vintage Club’s Ring of Kerry Tractor Run which is raising funds for the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Over 50 vintage tractors, including the six Killarney examples, will leave Nobber in County Meath at lunchtime on Wednesday.

After an overnight stop in the midlands on Wednesday night and Newcastle West on Thursday night, the tractors are expected in Killarney town centre just after lunchtime on Friday.

The ‘spectacular show’, now a regular feature of the Killarney summer, will bring the town to a standstill for around one hour.

On Saturday morning the group will depart Tony Wharton’s farm in Fossa before a nine-hour drive around the Ring of Kerry.

The run will finish with a spectacular drive through the Gap of Dunloe.

“We hope to pass through town around 3.30pm on Friday,” said local organiser, Tom Wharton, who is one of the six Killarney-based drivers who will undertake the 400km journey from County Meath to Killarney. “It is always a spectacular show.”

On arrival in Killarney, tractors will be joined by a group of classic cars that will depart Nobber at 9am that morning.
