Dublin Community Clean-Up 2020 will take place from 11 AM to 1 PM on Saturday 25th April 2020, and it will be proudly supported by the four local authorities.

The event was first created in 2019. Building on the success of previous calls to action – Dodder Action Day, Dublin Canals Action Day, Team Dublin Cleanup and Dublin Waters Action day – all came together for Dublin’s biggest volunteer cleanup on the cities streets, canals, rivers, mountains and coastline.

Therefore, this year, following the great achievement of the 2019 call to action, we are asking again all volunteers around Dublin to join forces and organise clean-ups around the cities, to make this the biggest clean-up event ever!

 Why not get your family and friends to be a part of the action?

You can start a brand new your own cleanup in your community, or take a look at our map and join an existing one.

From the mountains to the sea let’s make Dublin litter free.
