Dundalk Tidy Towns to hold big litter picks around town tonight to coincide with World Clean Up Day
Dundalk Tidy Towns will hold a big litter pick in 15 locations around Dundalk this evening 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 tonight and over the weekend.
Dundalk Tidy Towns are inviting everyone, individuals, residents’ associations and community groups, to undertake a clean up of their area this weekend. For those unable to organise a big event, they ask everyone to give consideration to doing a ‘2 Minute Street Clean’, simply by picking up a few pieces of litter or clearing a few weeds. Every little helps!
At 7pm tonight, 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 those events and locations are below:
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.”
