National Spring Clean Campaign Hits Halfway Mark in Kildare

National Springclean An Taisce’s National Spring Clean campaign is still going strong in County Kildare and this week will see the campaign hit the halfway mark.  Hundreds of clean up events have already taken place in Kildare and there are still plenty more to come! 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.

Dun na Riogh Residents Association in Naas are hosting a clean up on Sunday 22nd April and plenty of local school groups will host events throughout the week.

All volunteers registering for the National Spring Clean campaign are issued with a FREE clean up kit which contains information, posters, colour coded refuse sacks for segregation of waste materials, protective gloves and tabards to keep participants clean.  An Taisce will also liaise with local authorities to ensure that all materials collected will be picked up without charge.  Those who wish to take part should go to the National Spring Clean website at

The National Spring Clean campaign is sponsored by Coca-Cola Bottlers Ireland and the Wrigley Company. It is also supported by Repak who supply colour coded refuse sacks for recycling the materials collected and Local Authorities who co-ordinate activity in their communities.
