Dublin Community Clean-Up 2021 will take place from the 11th to the 19th of September 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 such as Dodder Action Day, Dublin Canals Action Day, Team Dublin Clean-up and Dublin Waters Action day, the groups have all come together for Dublin’s biggest volunteer clean-up on the city’s streets, canals, rivers, mountains and coastline.

In 2020 we had to cancel due to covid, therefore, this year, we are hoping to build on the great achievement of 2019, 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 your very own clean-up 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.

Dublin Community Clean Up Day 2019

The Dublin Community Clean-Up Day 2019 took place on 27th April from 11 am in locations all around the capital.

This event was a perfect occasion to commend and highlight the vast year-round work being carried out by volunteer groups such as Tidy Towns, Residents groups, Youth groups and various voluntary organisations from across Dublin.

Where did the clean-up events take place?

Clean-ups took place in several coastal areas around Dublin, such as Portmarnock, Suton, Sandycove, Monkstown and Killiney. In addition, clean-ups were organised on our rivers and canals, for example along the Camac, the Liffey, the Ward, the Dodder, the Poddle and the Grand and Royal Canals. Finally, people also organised clean-up events in our villages and neighbourhoods including in Swords, Lucan, Clondalkin, Stoneybatter, Phibsborough, Santry, Finglas, Monkstown, The Liberties, Ballyfermot, Bluebell, Ranelagh, Donnybrook, Ongar, Raheny, Clontarf, Balrothery, Rialto, Ringsend, Palmerstown, Irishtown, Terenure, Mulhuddart, Sutton, Drimnagh, Arbour Hill, Tallaght, Kilmainham, Ballsbridge Inchicore and various other locations throughout the county.
