Volunteers help keep Inishowen clean 22.04.15

COMMUNITY-spirited Inishowen people have been taking part in Donegal County Council’s anti-litter campaign - The Big Donegal Clean Up.
The volunteers are taking to the highways and byways of the peninsula to ensure they are litter-free for the benefit of local residents and tourists.
Council cathaoirleach Cllr John Campbell said littering was the most visible form of pollution and its presence immediately created a negative impression.

The success of the Big Donegal Clean Up depended on the help and support of all the people who take part.
"Tackling litter and illegal dumping is a priority for Donegal County Council. We also hope to minimise the problem through enforcement of the Litter Pollution Act, education, promotion of anti-litter initiatives and by appealing to people to take pride in their own county,” he said.

The Big Donegal Clean Up is one of the Council's largest anti litter campaigns. Tidy Towns, community groups, residents associations, schools, local businesses and individuals are all encouraged to get involved.
This initiative is run in conjunction with An Taisce’s National Spring Clean and has been taking place throughout the month of April.
Now an established part of the council-community calendar, the event gathers momentum each year with more and more people getting involved.
Litter pickers, gloves, high-viz vests and bags are provided to groups who register and the resulting rubbish is taken away by litter wardens.
