1st-30th April 2015

National Spring Clean is Ireland’s largest and most popular anti-litter initiative. The campaign encourages every sector of society to actively participate and take responsibility for the environment, by conducting clean-ups in their own local areas.

The National Spring Clean (NSC) takes place annually throughout the ‘Spring’ month of April, with the aim of raising awareness of the problem of litter nationally as we enter the summer months.

National Spring Clean has been operated by An Taisce since 1999 in partnership with the Department of Environment, Heritage & Local Government and Local Authorities and is sponsored by Coca-Cola Bottlers Ireland, the Wrigley Company Ltd. and Repak Ltd. The size and scale of National Spring Clean has grown steadily and significantly over the years.National-Spring-Clean-Poster-image
