Ireland’s largest anti-litter initiative will return for the month of April, writes Rachel Cunningham.

Operated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce, the National Spring Clean campaign Ireland is largest and longest running anti-litter campaign.

The initiative is supported by local authorities, who help co-ordinate clean-up activities for communities within their counties and the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment.

Local authorities also provide for the disposal of all rubbish and waste materials collected.  

 Over the past 24 years, over 85,000 clean-ups have been organised, 42,000 tonnes of litter have been removed and 12 million hours of work have been put in by volunteers.

 Interested community groups who are planning a community clean-up during the month can apply online at: http://www.nationalspringclean.org/.
