If you ever considered organising a clean up of your community then mark the the week of September 11th-19th in your diary.
Dublin's four local authorities are coming together with National Spring Clean, Dublin City Canals, Dodder Action and the many volunteer and community groups around the city to clean up the capital as part of Dublin's Climate Action week.
You can organise your own community cleanup or join an existing group in your area - with all kits being provided by your local council.
Speaking about the initiative Richard Whelan, Administrative Officer with DCC’s Waste Management Division, says “Dubliners have great pride in their city and Dublin City Council would like to thank communities throughout Dublin who regularly arrange clean up days in their areas with great results. During Climate Action Week we are asking everyone to get involved, in whatever way they can, in this week long initiative to clean up our local areas. Everyone benefits from this work, including our local areas, the environment and ultimately our planet.”
The plan is to get all communities involved from the mountains to the sea to make Dublin litter-free. Check Dublin Community Clean Up website for more information.
