Clean Up Laois Week 2022


 

Clean Up Laois Week 18th to 22nd April 2022

After a two year break Spring Clean Up Week returns to Co. Laois.  National Spring Clean has been operated by An Taisce since 1999 in partnership with the Department of Environment, Heritage & Local Government and local authorities throughout the country.

Laois County Council and their sponsors Bord na Mona are asking local communities to spring into action and join the fight against litter.  Groups, communities, neighbours and friends are requested to register with the Environment Section to receive packs of bags, gloves and litter pickers and to tackle the issue of litter in their local areas.  The collected litter will be gathered by Bord na Mona during the week commencing 25th April.  This initiative is Ireland’s biggest and longest running anti-litter campaign and makes a real impact on local environments.  Clean Up Laois Week last took place in 2019 and that year the county saw 108 groups registered and in excess of 1,600 volunteers taking part.  We hope that 2022 will be as successful.  Registration forms are available here: Clean up Laois Week Registration Form 2022  , or by emailing or phoning the Environment Section at  cleanupweek@laoiscoco.ie or 057 86 74322.

Each year this partnership approach to tackling the ongoing litter problem receives so much support from local residents, community groups, businesses and schools and is a testament to the community spirit that this initiative fosters.  Laois County Council acknowledges the great work done by all groups involved and would encourage the public to be extra vigilant in their own areas, by reporting any litter offences, unauthorised waste collectors, or fly tipping on the confidential freephone litter hotline 1800 32 32 30.
