Clean-up in Stoneybatter
Since July 2015, I have organised a series of clean-ups in the Stoneybatter area. They have been a great success, with many residents participating and establishing street cleaning groups in their area.
The monthly clean-up is a statement of intent that we want our community free of litter and rubbish, looking its best and an attractive place to live.
The purpose of this initiative is to highlight the problem of dumping and littering in the Stoneybatter area and to provide a community response.
In the long-term there is a need for a more effective approach: it requires community engagement; engagement with the business sector and landlords. It requires more CCTV cameras to identify those who are creating the problem. It requires close collaboration between Dublin City Council and the community.
Dublin City Council provide the necessary tools, such as brushes, shovels, litter pickers, plastic bags and high visibility vests. They will also removed the litter collected immediately afterwards.
If you are interested in participating in our general clean-up, please get in touch with Joe.
