Is littering a problem in your area?
Why not sign up for Fingal County Council’s “Adopt a Patch” scheme?
Here’s how it works:
You choose a public area to adopt and clean-up by collecting litter, maintaining flower beds or even painting walls. The Council will provide support in the form of hi-vis vests, litter pickers, gloves, bags and outdoor paint. We will collect the bags of litter after your clean-up, unfortunately though, we can’t collect green waste.
This scheme works very successfully in Fingal with groups adopting stretches of roadway, parts of beaches, bottle banks and litter blackspots.
