Home : Environment : National Spring Clean and Lily White Clean Up Day



 Lily White Clean Up Day 2018!!

Hundreds of people in Kildare take part in National Spring Clean- residents associations, schools, tidy towns groups, and individuals. The clean-up takes place during the month of April and is a great way of getting people involved in looking after their own locality.

This year, we are encouraging everybody in Kildare to take part in the biggest clean up the county has ever seen! On Saturday April 7th we are organising the Lily White Clean Up- this is a way of getting everybody motivated (including people who mightn't ordinarily get involved in cleanups) to clean up part of their area- even if you only have half an hour. The council will collect this waste by agreement in the week after this day. So, to ensure that we get all the collections done, we are asking that people apply by 5pm on Friday April 6th using the application form to be found in Environment Forms

How to get involved

Apart from Lily White Day, the entire month of April is designated as National Spring Clean, so if you can't participate on the 7th, don't worry, we are happy for cleanups to take place at any time during the month and we can organise removal of waste in just the same way. To register for the National Spring Clean, go to www.nationalspringclean.org or phone An Taisce at 01 4002220. Once you have registered you will receive a useful clean-up kit.

For assistance from the council, bags and litter pickers may be available- check with your local Municipal District office - have a look at the form for bags and litter pickers in Environment Forms- the map and contact details for all five Municipal Districts are on the form. To get the waste from a cleanup removed, use the Removal of Waste application form- also in the forms section.
