National Spring Clean 2020
National Spring Clean is set to commence on Monday next, 8th June.
Meath County Council is happy to support any groups wishing to undertake a Clean Up in their area.
Most groups in Meath received pickers, bags and gloves during the Anti Litter Initiative in March, if you need any additional equipment, it is available from the recycling centres.
When your clean up is finished, please email us at email@example.com indicating roughly how many bags you have for collection, where they are stored, a contact name & number and we will collect the waste.
This year we would love to share some of your photos on our social media pages, so if you take any photos during your clean ups, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with permission to share the images on twitter, facebook etc.
We would particularly like to see some of the younger age groups getting involved this year, there will be some goodie bags available for the best photos!
Register your event at www.nationalspringclean.org for additional information and supports.
