What services do we provide locally?

Local Clean Ups

The South East Area promotes civic responsibility and will assist residents to clean up their neighbourhood. We will supply gloves, brushes, bags and will arrange for rubbish collected during a clean up to be removed.
If your community requires assistance in organising a clean up or wish to participate in our annual leaf collection please contact:

Weed Control

Weed-spraying for all streets and laneways identified as being under Dublin City Council’s charge throughout the South East area will take place, weather permitting, during the following two periods:

1.    Between 1st May and 28th May
2.    Between 7th August and 6th September

Remove Graffiti / Illegal Dumping/ Abandoned Bicycles

You can help us by reporting incidents of illegal dumping, graffiti, abandoned bicycles (including frames, chains) etc in your neighbourhood to one of the following:

Bring Centres

Recycling converts old things into new goods. Dublin City Council has a plan to achieve 59% recycling of waste. You can help us by recycling your own rubbish.

Bagged Domestic Waste accepted at recycling centres

Did you know that bagged household domestic waste is accepted at Ringsend Recycling Centre, Seán Moore Road, Dublin 4 and Shamrock Terrace Recycling Centre, Northstrand Road, Dublin 3? There is a €4 charge for each 80 litre bag of domestic waste disposed.

Green Schools Programme

An Taisce co-ordinates the Green-Schools programme with the support of Local Authorities.  A total of 42 South East Area City schools are currently registered with An Taisce and are working on various stages of the green-schools programme.

While working on the programme, children learn about environmental issues and about how their behaviour can have either a positive or a negative effect on the environment around them.  It fosters a sense of ownership of the environment and it develops their sense of personal and collective responsibility for the care of the environment
