Dublin scrubs up nicely

Last Saturday local residents across the city came out to clean their communities, in an initiative dubbed ‘Team Dublin Clean-up Day 2022’.

The previous week, Deputy Lord Mayor Joe Costello launched the initiative with a visit to Stoneybatter.

“I am heartened to see the local community in Stoneybatter coming out in force and leading the way in the Spring Clean campaign…”

The theme of the campaign for this year was community pride and Dublin City Council invited community, residents, businesses and environmental groups to come together and get involved in the annual clean-up. Volunteers were automatically entered in the City Neighbourhoods Competition, where they could win a cash price of €1,000.  

Locals from the ‘Stoneybatter Pride of Place Community’ joined the Deputy Mayor at the launch on Friday, April 22mnd. “I am heartened to see the local community in Stoneybatter coming out in force and leading the way in the Spring Clean campaign,”, Costello said.

Participates of the ‘StoneyBatter Pride of Place Community’ clean-up started, as they regularly do, from Aughrim Street Church.  

Equipment required for the clean-out was provided by Dublin City Council beforehand, with no cost and all bags collected by the council on the same day.  

Lat weekend’s dusting down was built on the success of previous days of actions, including Dodder Action Day, Dublin Canals Action Day and Dublin Waters Action Day.
