litter warden Martin Roarty encouraging everyone to
“The interest from individuals and communities is
brilliant. If everyone gave 30 minutes of their time
to take part in a clean-up in their own area, it is
amazing what can be achieved.
"Donegal is a large county and unfortunately the
council cannot keep the county litter-free on its
own. That’s why the work of these individuals and
groups is so important."
The council is supporting the community clean-ups by
providing bags, gloves and litter pickers while
arranging for the collection of the bagged rubbish.
