Adopt a Patch

Fingal County Council appreciates the support of the public in making adopt a patch a successful scheme but for the duration of the emergency measures in relation to Covid 19, we strongly encourage all members of the public to put public health & safety first, and stay at home and abide by physical distancing”.

 

Fingal County Council are also not calling or delivering anything to member of the public homes. Both of these are physical distancing measures and are essential to the successful slowing down of the virus / infection rate and the safety and welfare of staff and members of the public.

 

Is littering a problem in your area?

Why not sign up for Fingal County Council’s “Adopt a Patch” scheme?

Here’s how it works:

You choose a public area to adopt and clean-up by collecting litter, maintaining flower beds or even painting walls. The Council will provide support in the form of hi-vis vests, litter pickers, gloves, bags and outdoor paint. We will collect the bags of litter after your clean-up, unfortunately though, we can’t collect green waste.

This scheme works very successfully in Fingal with groups adopting stretches of roadway, parts of beaches, bottle banks and litter blackspots.

In your ‘Adopt a Patch’ please retain any existing habitats such as ivy and wild flowers for use by pollinating insects.

Important actions include the following: -

  1. Less mowing
  2. Less Spraying
  3. Plant more pollen-rich flowers

 Pollen-rich flowers recommended by the National Biodiversity Data Centre are shown on their website in the resources section www.pollinators.ie
