SPRING CLEAN

April is usually the National Spring Clean month, even though we know well that volunteers are busy picking up litter all year round. So for the last few days of April let’s all make a big effort to pick up any litter we see when we are out and about. It’s a good time to see the litter in the ditches while the vegetation is still a bit low. A small number of litter pickers and bags are available for regular litter picking in your area ~ email info@roundwood.ie for details. If there is illegal dumping in your area please report it to the PURE Project by lo-call 1800 365 123.
