An Taisce’s National Spring Clean campaign is well underway in County Westmeath with hundreds of groups organising clean-up events throughout the county during April. The National Spring Clean campaign is Ireland’s largest anti-litter initiative organised by An Taisce and funded by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.
On Saturday April 16 Tyrrellspass Tidy Towns Rathgarrett are organising a spring clean of their area. For more information contact Theresa Dunne, project secretary on (086 ) 1901065.
The National Spring Clean campaign is sponsored by Coca-Cola HBC Ireland and the Wrigley Company. It is also supported by Repak who supply colour coded refuse sacks for recycling the materials collected and local authorities who co-ordinate activity in their communities.
All those registering for the National Spring Clean campaign are issued with a free clean-up kit which contains information, posters, colour coded refuse sacks for segregation of waste materials, protective gloves, and tabards to keep participants clean. National Spring Clean is run in partnership with local authorities who provide for the efficient management of all materials collected without charge.
An Taisce provides free clean-up kits for those registering to take part.
