An Taisce’s National Spring Clean campaign is well underway in Tipperary with hundreds of clean-ups scheduled to take place this month!
The National Spring Clean campaign is Ireland’s largest anti-litter initiative organised by An Taisce and funded by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.
This week in Tipperary, Drangan Tidy Towns will be taking part in National Spring Clean for the fifth time. The group will be hitting the village and approach roads Friday, April 11 at 7pm. Contact Drangan Tidy Towns Committee for more information about participating.
To celebrate this year’s campaign, An Taisce is also hosting a photo competition on Instagram. Entrants are asked to share images of the most beautiful spots in their local areas tagging National Spring Clean (nationalspringclean) and using the hashtag #LoveWhereYouLive.
All volunteers registering for the National Spring Clean campaign are issued with a FREE clean up kit which contains important information, posters, colour-coded refuse sacks for segregation of waste materials, protective gloves and tabards to keep participants clean.
An Taisce also liaises with Local Authorities to ensure that all rubbish and materials collected will be collected and disposed of without charge. All those wishing to take part should register on www.nationalspringclean.org
The National Spring Clean campaign is also supported by Repak who supply the colour-coded refuse sacks for recycling materials collected and Local Authorities who co-ordinate activities in their communities.
