The National Spring Clean is Ireland’s largest anti-litter initiative organised by An Taisce and funded by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.
The campaign runs throughout the month of April every year with clean-up events taking place in towns and communities all over the country. Over 500,000 volunteers participated in clean-ups throughout the country last April. Taking part in the National Spring Clean is very straight forward. Organise for a clean-up of your local area, which can take place any time during the month of April, and register your event online or by phone.
Local Election Candidate David Costello said, “National Spring clean is a wonderful opportunity to get out with you neighbors and show pride in our community. It’s a great way to iniatiate or build the membership of local tidy towns group also”
“I was involved in this initiative last year and it was very rewarding. Why not get your estate or road involved. You can register on www.nationalspringclean.org or contact your local city council office.”
