This is to remind you that the next beach cleanup will take place this weekend on Saturday 15th September 2018.
This month, the clean up coincides with World Clean Up Day and with the Clean Coasts' Big Beach Clean organised by An Taisce. A team from the European Commission Representation in Ireland Office have volunteered to help out on this day of action.
The details are as follows:
Time: 11:00a.m. so please try to arrive 15 minutes early.
Place: Meet at the entrance to Dollymount Strand, just past Royal Dublin Golf Club and beside the Happy Out Café.
Equipment: Litter pickers, bag hoops, rubbish bags, and gloves are provided.
Work areas: The beach, sand dunes, inner shore, and the causeway, if we have enough volunteers.
Dublin City Council provides a tractor and trailer, plus a driver, to remove and dispose of the litter collected. The Dublin Port Company provides us with litter-picking equipment.
Please check the weather and tide information for Saturday below. Dress according to conditions expected but be sure to wrap up well and bring a waterproof jacket - just in case! High SPF sunscreen is still advisable. Sturdy footwear and thick socks are essential and rubber boots are always a good idea.
Please try to persuade a friend or a family member to join you.
