Kids and gym equipment could soon be sold off in Ireland.
The new scheme, which has already been approved by the Department of Health, will see kids’ gym equipment sold off to fund new gym facilities in schools and other locations, including some that are being developed by the state.
The scheme is aimed at reducing the amount of waste and pollution in the country’s schools.
As a result of the scheme, local councils will be able to put up gym equipment in their schools for free, instead of having to pay an annual maintenance fee to run the gym.
The department said it was working with local authorities to make the equipment available for the scheme.
It said there had been “significant demand” for the new scheme and that the first batch of equipment will be available to councils within the next few weeks.
