Dublin’s Four Local Authorities, Clean Coasts, National Spring Clean, Local Authority Waters Programme, Dublin City Canals, Dodder Action, residents, volunteers, and community groups county-wide are coming together for Dublin’s largest clean up event this September.
The Dublin Community Clean-up is building on the success of the 2019 event when over 180 clean-ups took place across the county. This year’s event will take place from the 11th to the 19th of September and is part of Dublin’s Climate Action week. You can either organise your own clean-up or join an existing one in your community. All kit will be provided by the Dublin local authorities. Check Dublin Community Clean Up website for more information www.dublincommunitycleanup.ie.
Mayor of Fingal Cllr. Seána Ó Rodaigh said “Our outdoor spaces have become more important than ever over the past year. I encourage everyone to take part in the Community Clean Up this September. Every small action will help.”
Environmental Awareness officer, Fingal County Council, Sinead Fox commented “This is a great opportunity for Fingal community groups and residents to push for a significant clean-up. The picking of litter will prevent waste from getting washed into the sea. This will have a positive impact on our spaces and on the marine ecosystems. Well done to everybody involved and a special word of Thanks to people who go out picking litter all year round”.
Richard Curtin Clean Coasts Officer for the Dublin region commented, “We were delighted to be part of the Dublin Community Clean-up event again for 2021. Over the last year and a half so many of us have benefitted from spending time exploring the beauty of our locality. The Dublin Community Clean-up gives us an opportunity to give back and help protect our environment into the future”.
This September, let’s get the whole community involved and from the mountains to the sea we can make Dublin litter free.
