The slogan for the campaign is “From the mountains to the sea, let’s make Dublin litter-free.”

The initiative, established in 2019, is in its fourth year of operation and is supported by An Taisce as well as the four Dublin local authorities, Clean Coasts, Waterways Ireland and Dublin City Canals, to name but a few.

According to the Dublin Community Clean-up’s website, the objective of the campaign is to encourage every sector of society to take responsibility for their litter and for residents to strive to make Dublin litter free by taking part in local clean-ups in their localities.

Volunteers, residents and community led groups across the county are being asked to come together this April to make Dublin’s biggest clean-up more successful than ever – with the hope to expand on the achievements made in previous years.

During 2022’s clean-up, 2,500 tonnes of litter was collected among the 5,640 organised clean-ups by volunteer groups across Dublin.

People were able to stay updated on the Dublin Community Clean-Up by following their local authority on social media or by using #DublinCommunityCleanup and #SpringClean23 on Twitter.
