Recent Update on biodiversity project undertaken by KMK Metals Recycling

   Mon, 8th Apr, 2024

Much progress has been made with the biodiversity project undertaken by KMK Metals Recycling staff at its Kilbeggan premises.


Environmental Quality Officer at KMK Metals Recycling, David Finane, created a detailed biodiversity plan, which staff members have been implementing over the past months.


The site has now new signage which is comprised of box hedging shaped in the letters KMK. The edging on the pathway has been developed with the placement of more branches from the recent felling of trees on site, bulking up the existing edging which has benefits for the insect life on site. Some ground cover plants have also gone into the site to add interest and food for biodiversity.

A new coat of Leylandii bark mulch has been added to the bark mulch that was applied to the pathway over a year ago. This will help suppress the weeds for a time and make walking in this area an easier pursuit.


KMK's Managing Director Kurt Kyck is an avid supporter of biodiversity enhancement at our Kilbeggan site. He is also involved in other biodiversity related projects such as Weee2Tree which supports biodiversity actions being carried out in local communities and is partly sponsored by KMK Metals Recycling Limited.
