*Pictured at the launch of the National Spring Clean programme in County Galway are, L-R, Rosanna McCamley of Oranmore Tidy Towns’ Cathaoirleach of the County of Galway Cllr. Liam Carroll; Rose Mary Finlay of Oranmore Tidy Towns; and Laura Mullins and Mark Molloy Galway County Council.

HOUSEHOLDERS, schools, businesses and communities across Co Galway are being encouraged to support the National Spring Clean campaign this April.

The initiative spearheaded by An Taisce and supported by Galway County Council, is now in its 25th year and has seen an estimated 47,500 tonnes of litter removed from Irish streets, parks, and other areas by volunteers over the years.

Galway County Council is encouraging individuals and communities to register at www.nationalspringclean.org to ensure that this year’s campaign will be the most successful to date.

Cllr. Liam Carroll (FG), Cathaoirleach of Galway County Council said, “The local volunteers who participate in National Spring Clean are invaluable to our county. The work done by volunteers demonstrates a fantastic community spirit and over the years the campaign has been hugely successful in combating litter and helping to keep our communities clean”.

“Supporting the National Spring Clean Campaign is part of our ongoing Anti-Litter Programme and Litter Management Plan to encourage everybody to be part of the drive to make our county litter-free,” explained Liam Conneally, Chief Executive of Galway County Council.

He continued, “We recognise the important role volunteers play in delivering our anti-litter programmes, and I want to thank all who take part in our many environmental initiatives throughout the year”.

Eileen Ruane, Director of Services commented, “We look forward to supporting National Spring Clean again this year and we would encourage participation from across the county. The initiative enables litter picking campaigns, but it also highlights the litter problem and the benefits of eliminating litter to create cleaner and healthier communities”.

Registrations are being accepted on www.nationalspringclean.org and www.galway.ie. Further information is available from the Environment Section of Galway County Council on 091-509510 / environment@galwaycoco.ie.
