An Taisce’s National Spring Clean campaign is about to kick off in County Mayo with groups organising clean-up events throughout the county in the coming weeks. The National Spring Clean campaign is Ireland’s largest anti-litter initiative organised by An Taisce and funded by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.
One of the many events taking place in Mayo over the coming two weeks involves Swinford Tidy Towns committee and volunteers along with Swinford Scouts and leaders. All invovled are meeting at the No Name club on Chapel Street Swinford on the 29th March, at 11am, cleaning their environment within the town and the woodland area of Kilkelly Road.
The Swinford volunteers were joined for the launch by local heroes, The Hardy Boys, who have just launched their first movie following great success with their TV series on RTE.
For more information, please contact Michael Maye on 087 2360520
All volunteers registering for the National Spring Clean campaign are issued with a FREE clean up kit which contains important information, posters, colour coded refuse sacks for segregation of waste materials, protective gloves and tabards to keep participants clean.
An Taisce also liaises with local authorities to ensure that all rubbish and materials collected will be collected and disposed of without charge.
The National Spring Clean is also supported by Repak who supply colour coded refuse sacks for recycling materials collected and Local Authorities who co-ordinate activities in their communities.
