National Spring Clean

As per An Taisce and National guidance, clean-up groups taking part must adhere to current Covid restrictions

Spring Clean 21 - Stay Safe

To Get Involved…

Each Spring, Tidy Towns Committees, Schools, societies, or any group of people come together in order to tackle litter will receive assistance from an Taisce and Sligo County Council.  Your support and leadership is needed to get actively involved in this clean-up campaign.  To organize an event in your area, simply register with An Taisce on www.nationalspringclean.org with details of your name, address, Telephone Number and how many volunteers are in your group. 

Sligo County Council supply clear bags and gloves to groups that have registered with An Taisce.  Please note that only clear bags will be collected and any other bags, including coloured An Taisce bags, will not be picked up.  Household rubbish is not permitted to be included in this collection.

Sligo County Council will provide hand-held litter pickers to all groups at a reduced cost of €3 each.

Please advise Sligo County Council of your intended efforts before your group commences the clean-up so that we can arrange for collection of bags, if applicable. 

You can contact Environment Section at 071 9111457 for further information and to arrange collection of bags.
