Lord Mayor launches ‘Community Clean-Up Week’
Published on 13th September 2021
The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Alison Gilliland, has this morning launched ‘Community Clean-Up Week’.
This year’s event takes place from September 11th to September 19th, and is part of the inaugural 'Dublin Climate Action Week'.
The Lord Mayor was joined by Olympic medalist Eimear Lambe and local people from the ‘Crumlin Community Clean-Up’ group at this morning’s launch.
“I am delighted to be in Crumlin this morning to officially launch Community Clean-Up Week,” said the Lord Mayor. “I know the local people here are very proud of their area and do a great job coming together at weekends to help keep it tidy. Community Clean-Up Week is a chance for everyone to play their part in looking after their local area, and maybe even have a bit of fun while they’re doing it!”.
‘Community Clean-Up Week’ is an initiative involving the 4 Dublin Local authorities and is Dublin’s largest clean-up event. Dublin City Council has provided cleaning equipment to local clean-up groups across the city, including bags, gloves and litter pickers. The Council will also be collecting all the waste each day.
Members of the public are invited to get involved in improving their local areas by taking part and either organising their own clean-up group or joining an existing group in their community.
Groups taking part this year include Dublin’s Four Local Authorities, Clean Coasts, National Spring Clean, Local Authority Waters Programme, Dublin City Canals, Dodder Action, residents, volunteers, and community groups county-wide.
