It could cost up to €3,000 to clean up two sites were caravans were temporarily encamped, the Council has said.


The temporary encampments were located along the Naas Ring Road and on the Straffan Road in Kill. 


The issue was raised at this week's local Municipal District meeting. 


Cllr Fintan Brett asked the Council to outline the cleaning up costs involved after the caravans moved on. 


A Council spokesperson replied: "A clean-up at the Naas Ring Road was recently undertaken by the Council's Environment Clean-up Crew, with assistance from Naas Tidy Towns. 


A request for a clean-up at Straffan Road, Kill is currently being arranged by the Environment Department." 


The statement added: "An estimated cost of €1,000 - €1,500 is typical for each of these individual clean up requests".
