Dundalk Tidy Towns to hold big litter pick to coincide with World Clean Up Day on September 20th
Dundalk Tidy Towns will hold a big litter pick in 15 locations around Dundalk on Friday September 20th to coincide with World Clean Up Day.
In 2018 millions of people gathered to tidy their communities, beaches, rivers and towns around the world and this year Dundalk will be taking part with various clean-ups happening around the town at 7pm that night and over the weekend.
Dundalk Tidy Towns are inviting everyone, individuals, residents’ associations and community groups, to undertake a clean up of their area from Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd September. For those unable to organise a big event, they ask everyone to give consideration to doing a ‘2 Minute Street Clean’ on that weekend, simply by picking up a few pieces of litter or clearing a few weeds. Every little helps!
On Friday 20th September at 7pm, Tidy Towns volunteers will undertake a litter pick in 15 areas right around the town. Volunteers will spend no more than one hour and attempt to leave the area as clean as possible. Bags, litter pickers and gloves will be provided.
Details of the organised litter picks can be found on the Dundalk Tidy Towns Facebook page. Photos and details of individual events can be sent via the page and will be featured.
A spokesperson for Dundalk Tidy Towns said: “All are welcome to join us; this is a great opportunity to show love for where you live.”
