28/03/2014 - Inishowen takes on Spring Clean Challenge celebrating 16 years of National Spring Clean


The Inishowen Spring Clean Challenge is taking place on Saturday 12th April 2014.  This is a particular focus across the Inishowen Peninsula and is part of the National Spring Clean month. 


During the National Spring Clean month of April 2014 hundreds of thousands of volunteers across Ireland will take part in cleaning their community.  The communities in the Inishowen Electoral Area will play their part in the National clean up month throughout April, with some groups carrying out weekly cleanups in their communities throughout the whole year.  An exceptional effort which deserves great credit.


It has now become an annual event over the past few years where the numerous groups and communities in the Inishowen Electoral Area have worked together on a nominated Saturday during the Spring Clean Month to carry out a Peninsula wide clean up.  In particular this mass clean up has focused on by-roads and side streets between towns and villages as well as the main thoroughfares.


Through the National Spring Clean campaign and Donegal County Council’s Spring Summer Clean up campaign support is given to groups intending to carry out a clean up in the form of the provision of Bags, Gloves and Litter Pickers. Any group that registers with An Tasice will receive a clean up kit but you may require additional materials, if so please contact the Water and Environment Section in the Donegal County Council Public Service Centre at Carndonagh on 074 91 53900. 


For further information on the Clean Up event in your area contact your local Tidy Towns or Community organisation for particular local arrangements and to find out about the local assembly points. 


Be Safe Be Seen – Please bring reflective coats to maximise visibility and safety

If you are unable to carry out a clean up in April you can still receive support from Donegal County Council’s Spring Summer clean up campaign which will provide resources throughout the summer time. For more information contact Donegal County Council on 074 9153900 or visit .
