Did you know?

The Big Donegal Clean-up runs every April!

The goal is for communities to come together and take a proactive approach to improving the environment that we all share.

There is hopes that 2024 will be the biggest clean up yet – more and more people have been joining!

Why it’s important!

Over 900 clean ups were supported by Donegal County Council last year – that’s a lot of rubbish off our roads.

This campaign sees the Council supporting individuals, groups, businesses and organisations in arranging their own clean-ups.

The Council provides bags, gloves and litter pickers while also taking care of the collection of rubbish once it has been bagged.

You can contact the council all year round for support with a clean up – not just in April.

The Donegal Volunteer Centre are once more joining the campaign and will publicise details of planned clean-ups on their website www.volunteerdonegal.ie.

The Council is also planning to promote clean-ups on its social media pages. You can share your photos via the following sites:

  1. Twitter @DonegalCouncil
  2. Facebook @donegalcoco
