April is National Spring Clean month and Galway City Council is encouraging schools, groups, and individuals from all over the city to take part in Ireland's biggest anti-litter initiative.
This year marks the 16th anniversary of the National Spring Clean campaign and over half a million people will take part in more than 5,000 clean-ups across the country. In Galway city, a Big Clean-Up Day will take place on April 1 with more than 25 schools participating in a clean-up of their school grounds and surrounding areas.
Sharon Carroll, environmental education officer with Galway City Council, says: “National Spring Clean Month provides an excellent opportunity for groups and individuals to show that they 'Love Where They Live' by taking part in a clean-up of their local area. A free clean-up kit is available from An Taisce or from Galway City Council when you register your clean-up."
