The National Spring Clean 2024

Registrations are open for Ireland's National Spring Clean 2024. To date there have been over 3,000 registrations nationally, but registrations will remain open throughout the month of April for those still interested in participating in the campaign.

Ireland’s largest anti-litter campaign, the National Spring Clean is operated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce in partnership with Local Authorities and supported by the Department of Environment, Communications and Climate Environment and Mars Wrigley Ireland. Local authorities also provide for the disposal of all rubbish and waste materials collected.

This year marks 25 years of the campaign, which has seen the removal of an estimated 47,500 tonnes of litter from Irish streets, parks, coastlines, thanks to over 12 million volunteer hours.

A key focus of this year’s campaign will be highlighting the impact that a circular economy model can have on reducing waste and reducing our climate impact. Last year alone, 35% of all waste collected during the National Spring Clean was recycled, thanks to recyclable waste bags provided to registered groups and individuals.

An Taisce’s National Spring Clean is inviting people to visit the website and register for a free clean-up kit.
