National Spring Clean 2013 Comes to Dun Laoghaire Rathdown

Recycling sign

As this year is the 15th Anniversary of An Taisce’s National Spring Clean, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is encouraging everyone to do their bit to make it even bigger and better. Local residents can once again play a part in keeping their community tidy by participating in the Annual Spring Clean which runs through the month of April.

The Council is supporting this important campaign by providing litter pickers and gloves, and will be arranging extra resources to pick up waste from weekend clean-ups in April. Groups who wish to be involved in the National Spring Clean should nominate a particular weekend in April for their area so that the Council can schedule a pickup on the following Monday or Tuesday.

Groups participating in the National Spring Clean must register in advance with the Council. Participants must also use the clean up bags that are provided by the Council which will be registered to your clean-up team. Waste presented in bags that are not provided by the Council will not be collected. Green waste is not eligible for collection.

All you have to do to register your community clean-up, is email or ring the Council with your choice of weekend: environ@dlrcoco.ie or 01 205 4817. You can choose from April 6/7, 13/14, 20/21 or the 27/28.

Don’t forget

Participants must also use the clean up bags that are provided by the Council which will be registered to your clean-up team. If waste is presented and it is not in blue Council bags – the Council will not collect this waste.

Green waste (grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, branches, etc.) – the Council will not collect this waste.
