Dublin City Council provides a tractor and trailer, plus a driver, to remove and dispose of the litter collected. The Dublin Port Company provides litter-picking equipment.
Please check the weather and tide information for Saturday below. Dress according to the conditions expected but be sure to bring a rain jacket - just in case!. Sturdy footwear and thick socks are essential and rubber boots are always a good idea. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen too!
Try to persuade a friend or a family member to join you. The more volunteers we have, the greater the amount of work that we can do.
All who participate are invited to Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club for festive hot drinks and mince pies from 1:00p.m.
