New Clean Team for Grafton Street

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council and McDonald’s Ireland are teaming up to form Grafton Street’s Clean Team. McDonald’s Grafton Street staff, supplied with cleaning equipment from the council’s South East Area Office, will carry out a clean-up on the street at 12 noon on Sunday 1st June.

Dublin’s Lord Mayor Oisín Quinn welcomes the initiative. He says “McDonald’s clean up of Grafton Street this Sunday is another example of how local business and communities can help Dublin City Council to keep Dublin clean. Grafton Street is hugely important to the city and I would encourage all businesses to play their part in maintaining it”.

The Lord Mayor was joined staff from McDonald’s Grafton Street to announce details of the clean-up at the St. Stephen’s Green end of Grafton Street today. The clean-up is supported by Dublin City Business Improvement District and Dublin City Business Association.

Dublin City Council provided McDonald’s with litter bags, brushes, gloves, shovels and other cleaning equipment and will collect and dispose of the rubbish that is collected. The council is encouraging people to dispose of waste responsibly, especially over the busy June Bank Holiday weekend.

Dublin City Council is currently repaving Grafton Street in a €4million initiative which includes street furniture and new public lighting. The project is progressing on schedule and is expected to be completed by November 2014.
