Dublin City Council spends over €31 million euro every year on litter removal and street cleaning, employing over 500 staff working around the clock to keep Dublin clean. It is hugely important that the city looks its best at all times from a business, tourist and leisure point of view and indeed for the citizens of Dublin.

Supported by the Department of the Environment, Community & Local Government, Failte Ireland & Dublin ISPCA the Council has recently launched its new Litter Awareness Campaign. The focus of this campaign is dog fouling and graffiti.

The campaign, ‘Let’s Make a Clean Start Together’, is calling on citizens to simply pick up after your dog and dispose of the dog litter in a bin near you.

Dog litter is an ongoing source of considerable nuisance to all and it is particularly difficult to control. Toxacara can be contracted from infected dog litter and can lead to serious illness.

Graffiti is also a constant problem in Dublin costing the city council and private owners hundreds of thousands of euro each year to remove. Dublin City Council spends €350,000 annually on graffiti removal. 

Dubliners are proud of their city, its culture, character and achievements. We are calling on all citizens to demonstrate that pride by helping to keep their city clean.
