National Spring Clean is Ireland’s most popular, well recognised and successful anti-litter initiative. Now in its 18th year, the campaign encourages every sector of society to actively participate and take responsibility for litter, by actually conducting clean-ups in their own local environment. National Spring Clean traditionally takes place throughout the month of April.

  • The objectives of the National Spring Clean are to:
  • Encourage clean-ups throughout the whole month of April
  • Galvanise the practices of recycling and re-use where possible
  • Increase the number of Events and Participants
  • Promote personal responsibility for litter
  • Heighten awareness of litter and waste issues

Taking part in the National Spring Clean is very straight forward. Organise for a clean up of your local area, to take place any time during April, and register your event online, by phone, fax or post.

Once you have registered you will receive a FREE clean-up kit from An Taisce. The clean up kit contains valuable tips on how to hold a successful clean-up event, a poster to advertise your event, ideas on how to make your event different and lots more useful information.

The pack also includes plastic bags in which to collect your litter and recyclable material, some tabards to keep your clothes clean and some gloves to keep your hands safe and clean. Because National Spring Clean encourages recycling, a number of colour coded bags are provided for collection of litter that can be recycled.
